2018 GLOBAL SECURITY FORUM
Returning Foreign Fighters: Policies and Actions to Address the Threat and Protect Vulnerable Communities
The inaugural 2018 Global Security Forum took place in Doha, Qatar, from 30-31 October 2018, bringing together a consortium of experts, practitioners, and policy-makers to address the global challenge of returning foreign fighters. The forum served as an opportunity for a multi-disciplinary network to come together to address the foreign fighter phenomenon and its effects on vulnerable communities and global security. The 2018 Forum addressed a range of issues – from understanding the global terrorism landscape to addressing challenges to prosecution to discussing the particular issue of returning women, children, and families.
