Download Document

In September 2018, Morocco and the United States launched an Initiative under the auspices of the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF) Foreign Terrorist Fighters Working Group to provide guidelines for improving terrorist screening mechanisms and capabilities to interdict terrorist travel. This document is the result of lessons learned, concerns, challenges, and case studies shared by practitioners and policymakers to address systemic gaps and implement necessary legal and policy measures to further secure borders against terrorist travel and ensure implementation of UNSCR 2396. Moreover, this document synthesizes the major themes and outcomes from regional workshops in New York, the United States; Berlin, Germany; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; and Rabat, Morocco. The following non-binding guidelines for good practices should be considered in light of each state’s circumstances, domestic legal standards, and international obligations and commitments, including those under international human rights law, international refugee law, and international humanitarian law, as applicable.
