Radicalisation is one of the most alarming security threats. This paper focuses on the issue of recruitment and addresses the problem of the closely related phenomenon of foreign fighters traveling to and from conflict zones. Specifically, it examines criminal justice responses that tackle the issue of foreign fighters who join Islamic State in Syria or Iraq in both fighting and non-combat capacities such as spiritual leaders or family members.
