Affiliated with ISIS: Challenges for the return and reintegration of women and children

This study aims to better understand the plight of families associated with ISIL, including those who remain displaced or imprisoned, to identify opportunities for rehabilitation and sustainable reintegration through gender-responsive recommendations.

Mostly women and children, families perceived to be affiliated with ISIL require mental and psychosocial care, livelihoods support, and often access to social services and housing options.

This study comes in a critical time when the government of Iraq, with support from the international community, is leading a strategic process to repatriate Iraqi families from Al-hol camp in north-east Syria.
