Towards Lasting Peace and Stability Lessons Learned in Iraq and Afghanistan UN and GCTF Good Practices for Rehabilitation and Reintegrtation of Violent Extremist Offenders Presented by Dr. D.M. Stone, MajGen USMC (Ret)
Detention: Viewed as a Problem Historic failures in custody and care serve as recruiting tools for foreign fighters. Detention had also served as a place for insurgents to conduct recruiting, training, and disciplining of future combatants.
Defining Strategic Success VICTORY Establish an alliance with moderate Iraqis Empower them to effectively marginalize violent extremists Provide momentum to the process of reconciliation with Iraqi society
Phase I: Apply COIN principles to TIF, separate extremists from population, and protect populations both inside and outside the TIF Phase II: Defeat the insurgency within the TIF, succeed in the battlefield of the mind, and identify ideas which are contagious Phase III: Engaging populations with detainees, families, and releasees and establish a “social epidemic” which advances the objective of empowering the moderate ummah to marginalize the violent extremists within Iraq The Plan
TF-134 Goals Ensure standards of care and custody Determine if detainee is Imperative Security Risk - if so, reduce the risk, replace the destructive ideology - when no longer a threat, release Identify detainees who are Enduring Security Risks Collect information from detainees and provide intelligence Defeat any insurgency within the TIF

There is inadequate prison bed space in which to house current and projected inmate populations. CJIATF-435 MajGen StoneUNCLASSIFIED / FOUO17
Battlefield of the Mind Moderates GOI and CoalitionExtremists
United Nations Best Practices Defining Goals and Objectives Prison Context The Role of Different Actors Reintegration Components Looking to Other Relevant Fields
Defining Goals and Objectives #1 In developing a rehabilitation program, it is important to first clearly define the program’s goals and objectives and identify indicators of success and failure. #2. Good prison standards and practices can offer an appropriate starting point for building an effective, safe and smoothly operating rehabilitation program.
CJIATF-435 MajGen StoneUNCLASSIFIED / FOUO21 In Coalition and GIRoA detention/corrections, there is a lack of a validated inmate classification system to identify prisoners by category, risk and radicalization.
#3. An importanat first step is developing an effective intake, assessment and classification system for new inmates. #4. Where possible, States should consider establishing separate facilities for those inmates going through the rehabilitation programs. #5. Ensure that all relevant staff are appropriately and professionally trained and educated to deal with the complexities of reintegration or rehabilitation efforts.
The Role of Different Actors #6. Some measure of control should be maintained over the inmates’ communication, both within and outside the prison. #7. Rehabilitation Programs should incorporate a broad range of cross-disciplinary experts, with close coordination among the relevant departments and personnel involved. #8. Psychologists can play a key role in the rehabilitation process and should be fully integrated into these programs.

#9. As the personnel in most frequent contact with the inmates, it is important that prison officers understand and are carefully attuned to the rehabilitation process, even if they are not directly responsible for its delivery. #10. When appropriate, States should integrate religious scholars into the rehabilitation process. #11. Law enforcement officers who are interviewing inmates during the rehabilitation process should receive specialized training and should coordinate these activities closely with the rehabilitation professionals.
#12. Victims and victim’s advocates can be powerful voices and States should consider including them in rehabilitation programs, where appropriate. #13. Former violent extremists can be influential with those going through the rehabilitation process and should be included where possible and appropriate. #14. Charismatic members of the community can also help inspire change and should be included in rehabilitation programs where possible and appropriate.
Reintegration Components #15. Rehabilitation efforts should include behavioral and cognitive skills programs. #16. Rehabilitation programs should include basic education courses where possible and appropriate. #17. Rehabilitation programs should include vocational skills training and employment assistance where possible and appropriate.
#18. States should consider finding ways to recognize the achievement of inmates who have completed the rehabilitation program. #19. States should consider whether inmates should be eligible for sentence reduction or other more lenient treatment based on the completion of rehabilitation courses. #20. States should consider whether additional financial support can be provided to inmates and their families who have completed the rehabilitation courses.
#21. States should consider developing aftercare programs to enable the treatment to continue after the inmate has left the prison setting. #22. Consideration for protective measures should be given when there is evidence that a reformed terrorist may face threats to his or her life, or the lives of family members, upon release from custody. #23. Formal or informal, parole-like monitoring post release can be an effective method to prevent recidivism.
# 24. Families should be integrated where possible and appropriate into rehabilitation programs. #25. Fostering a welcoming community environment for the inmate post-release is critical to long-term success.
Other Relevant Fields. #26. As States design rehabilitation programs, they should look, as appropriate, to other relevant fields beyond terrorism for lessons learned.
