Why Kosovo is taking back more ISIS returnees than any other country in EU

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — In April, the majority Muslim country of Kosovo took back 110 of its citizens, mainly the wives and children of Islamic State fighters. They had been detained in Kurdish camps in northern Syria after the collapse of Islamic State’s territory.

European countries like Germany, France, and Britain are reluctant to allow former fighters to return because of the potential security threat, but Kosovo’s approach is more open. Nevertheless, the country is struggling to fully integrate the returnees back into civilian society.
