Addressing Homegrown Terrorism Initiative

Homegrown terrorism is a truly global phenomenon. In lieu of luring foreign terrorist fighters (FTFs), ISIL/Da’esh, Al-Qaida, and their cells, affiliates, splinter groups or derivatives, as well as other transnational terrorist groups, use their experience to direct, enable, inspire and incite individuals to commit deadly terrorist attacks in their own countries.

The IIJ is proudly leading implementation and operationalisation of the GCTF’s Rabat – Washington Good Practices on Prevention, Detection, Intervention, and Response to Homegrown Terrorism, and integrating other related tools and policy frameworks into impactful training curricula for practitioners. Specifically, the Addressing Homegrown Terrorism Initiative focuses on the practical steps governments can take – across the prevention, detection, intervention and response phases – to address in a coordinated way challenges posed by homegrown terrorism.
