An OSCE-supported seminar on the presentation of manuals on how to work in the rehabilitation of returning foreign terrorist fighters and their families took place on 22 November 2019 in Nur-Sultan.
The manuals were developed with the support of the OSCE Programme Office in Nur-Sultan together with the Regional Office of Penal Reform International (PRI) in Central Asia, and the Government of the United Kingdom.
Some 30 officials from the Anti-terrorism Centre of the National Security Committee and the Committee on Child Protection of the Ministry of Education and Science gathered to discuss methods and practices applied in the rehabilitation of returnees from conflict zones where terrorist organizations are operating.
Presentations included key areas and methods for assessing the risks and needs of working with women and child returnees from conflict zones, as well as the rehabilitation programmes for foreign terrorist fighters and their families.
The event was part of the OSCE Programme Office in Nur-Sultan’s long-term support to projects in the host country that aim at countering violent extremism and radicalization that lead to terrorism.
