How have UK counter-terrorism laws and policies adapted to the phenomenon of ‘foreign terrorist fighters’? For these purposes, the focus will be upon persons linked to conflict or terrorism in Iraq and Syria associated with the rise and establishment of Islamic State (Daesh). This broad agenda covers: the meanings of ‘foreign terrorist fighters’ and the formulation of policy against them; criminal justice, policing and prosecution aspects of response; and non-criminal justice aspects of response, including travel and citizenship measures and the Prevent policy.
