The French Approach to Female Violent Extremist Offenders In: Tanya Mehra, Thomas Renard and Merlina Herbach (eds.), Female Jihadis Facing Justice: Comparing Approaches in Europe, The Hague, International Centre for Counter-Terrorism (ICCT), 2024

How are women jihadists prosecuted and sentenced in different European countries? What happens when they are incarcerated? What reintegration programs are in place for women formerly detained for terrorism-related offenses?


To answer these three questions, the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism in The Hague set up an international research team that examined several hundred cases and conducted dozens of interviews with officials, practitioners, detainees, and more. Marc Hecker, Ifri’s Deputy Director, specializing in terrorism, analyzed the French case.

This research led to the publication of a book that can be downloaded for free.
