Rehabilitating Children of Daesh: Extracting Recommendations from the Education-Related ISIS Files

This recommendations report is part of a broader project conducted in partnership between Hedayah and the George Washington (GW) University Program on Extremism.

This project analyzes education-related primary source ISIS documents that are part of the Daesh Files project. A research report, “Planting the Seeds of the Poisonous Tree: Establishing a System of Meaning through ISIS Education,” analyzed the ISIS Files related to children’s education, and revealed the main values, norms, and narratives leveraged by Daesh through their education system and targeted towards children. This document identifies key recommendations for governments and practitioners working on cases related to Daesh-affiliated children.
