GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany – The George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies just released a report on the best practices and findings of combating foreign fighters from its Global Counterterrorism Alumni Community of Interest Workshop held here Nov. 16 to 19. 

The report can be found here.

The Marshall Center’s workshop titled “Perspectives on Countering Foreign Terrorist Fighters” was held four days after the deadly terrorist attacks occurred in Paris.   More than 75 counterterrorism alumni from 44 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East and North America attended the workshop.  Twelve gave presentations on their national perspectives and experiences in countering foreign terrorist fighters.

A selection of these talks have been uploaded to the Marshall Center’s YouTube page. Lectures are:

 “This is a threat that more than 100 nations around the world face. It’s a threat just recently shown in Paris by the attack carried out there by fighters who had gone to Iraq and Syria and then returned to France,” said Director, Program in Terrorism and Security Studies James Howcroft. “We bought together these alumni, who are practitioners in the counterterrorism field, to talk about what their nations are doing about this threat, to exchange best practices, lessons learned both good and bad, and how to deal with this threat and how to mitigate it.”
