STORYLINE
A United Nations (UN) counter- terrorism expert said “identification and the location of remaining foreign terrorist fighters remains an absolutely critical priority for the international community.”

Michèle Coninsx, the Executive Director of the Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED) told reporters today (11 Apr) “because of the young age of possible returning and relocating for foreign terrorist fighters or children terrorist fighters, there is more than ever a need for a tailored approach, tailored protection, tailored prosecution and rehabilitation and reintegration.”

A new trends report published by Coninsx’s office “The Challenge of Returning and Relocating Foreign Terrorist Fighters: Research Perspectives,” outlines a number of issues United Nations Member States are facing related to foreign terrorist fighters.

The Executive Director also noted that priority measures like the biometric data, like PNR Passenger Names Record, like Advanced Passenger Identification Systems are “extremely important,” adding that those “have to be and need to be implemented in the 193 Member States, in order to identify, locate the movement of foreign terrorist fighters.”

On the recent waves of foreign terrorist fighters who travelled to the conflict zones in Syria and Iraq, Coninsx said that they have clear differences compared to the previous fighters.

She added “studies indicate that this wave is larger, more complex, more global and more diverse in terms of age, gender and in experience in conflict zones.”
