Denationalisation of Foreign Terrorist Fighters

Veronica Corcodel (Editor), Dimitra Fragkou

Research output: Other contribution


During the past years and specifically after the retreat of ISIS and Al-Qaeda forces in Syria and Iraq, thousands of European citizens who participated as Foreign Terrorist Fighters in those conflicts and their families are returning to their communities. States have sought to reduce the risk of expanding terrorist clusters on European soil through more restrictive legislation. The main impetus of the present post is the felt need to address the challenges posed by the recent expansion of denationalisation of European citizens accused οf terrorist acts abroad. For these reasons, the post reviews the UN Framework for denationalisation. It also reflects on how the recent developments in the European context may affect the future of human rights and international peace and stability.
