Dealing with Canadian ‘Jihadis’ Detained Abroad: New MLI Commentary


The Islamic State is crumbling, and in its wake, Canadian policy makers are now faced with a new challenge: what should be done with Canadian jihadis returning home or being detained abroad?

To address this problem, MLI has released a new commentary by Scott Newark, titled It's Time for an Effective Strategy to Deal with Canadian 'Jihadis' Detained Abroad. In it, Newark argues in favour of a proactive, case-specific approach to managing jihadist fighters as they return to Canada or become detained abroad.
