February 2020 | The Reintegration Imperative: Child Returnees in the Western Balkans

This month, RESOLVE highlights recommended readings from our latest policy note. In “The Reintegration Imperative: Child Returnees in the Western Balkans” Adrian Shtuni explains the need for long-term, proactive solutions to address the youthful demographics of foreigners linked to the Syrian conflict. The policy note provides recommendations for policymakers to rehabilitate and reintegrate child returnees in the Western Balkans based on existing good practices and the guiding principles of international law on the rights of the child. To enhance the policy note, Mr. Shtuni suggests further readings on child recruitment and terrorist exploitation, children in terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, and child rehabilitation and reintegration.
