Default Balkan foreign fighters: from Syria to Ukraine

Thanks to a "lurker" for the pointer to this four pg report:http://www.iss.europa.eu/uploads/med...n_fighters.pdf

A few passages:
Quote:
Only with the emergence of Balkan jihadists fighting for Daesh did the question of foreign fighters come under the spotlight in the region.
None of the countries has been efficient at producing counter-narratives whether through main-stream media or via Internet and social media channels.
Ukrainian fighters remain just ‘ordinary extremists’. The lack of political will to tackle and condemn right-wing extremism is more than evident.

Default Foreign Fighters: a resource to plunder

A UN report (60 pgs) co-authored by Richard Barrett (ex-SIS) and Professor Hamed el-Said (Jordanian academic & UK citizen). Unusual as they interviewed forty-three fighters, most of them in jail in seven nations. A good literature review (ICSR, Soufan Group and others) and more within.

Quote:
The 43 FTFs interviewed for the project represent 12 different nationalities. Of these, 33 (77 per cent) reached Syria, while ten (23 per cent) were either intercepted by their own authorities before departing their country of residence, or stopped by the authorities of a transit country while en route to Syria.
Later:
Quote:
FTFs have many different motives for joining armed groups, but the idea of establishing a Caliphate does not appear to be prominent among them.

Default Another resource to plunder

Id'd via Twitter a Manual 'Responses to Returnees: Foreign Terrorist Fighters and their families' by the Radicalisation Awareness Network, an EU-funded project, 102 pgs.

Short of time just check pgs. 6 & 7, for graphics.
