The prosecution of ISIL-associated women

More news about the topic

The challenges involved in prosecuting women who return from the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as Da’esh) have often been cited as a reason for States’ reluctance to repatriate their female citizens. Because of that reluctance and the difficulties encountered by women attempting to return independently, women are the demographic group with the lowest overall rate of return from the conflict zone in Iraq and the Syrian Arab Republic.

The Analytical Brief on the prosecution of ISIL-associated women identifies an urgent need to develop more gender-sensitive criminal justice responses and alternative approaches to rehabilitation and reintegration outside the criminal justice system.
