How is Turkey dealing with its ISIS returnees?

Online event

2 July 2020

The Islamic State's diminished stature and measures adopted by the Turkish authorities have spared Turkey from ISIS attacks for more than three years. But while the threat should not be overplayed, it has not necessarily disappeared. That Turkish returnees turn their back on jihadist militancy is important for national and regional security. Crisis Group's latest report "Calibrating the Response: Turkey’s ISIS Returnees" looks at Ankara’s approach toward returnees, with recommendations to further ensure former ISIS members steer clear of militancy.
