Past IPAC Reports

Here’s a link to [IPAC’s] latest report on Indonesia, “Managing Indonesia’s Pro-ISIS Deportees”. The report shows the complex problem of how to monitor and reintegrate pro-ISIS deportees: individuals and families that tried to join Islamic State but were deported before they could do so, mostly from Turkey. Over 500 men, women and children have been sent back through official channels, and not all are high risk. One recommendation in this report is that just as Indonesia has developed designated police, prosecutors and judges to work on terrorism cases, it should consider developing a team of specially trained social workers to work with long-term monitoring and reintegration of deportees and released terrorism offenders.
