UNOCT’s Global Programme on PRR is designed to support Member States to meet the requirements from the General Assembly and the Security Council to implement comprehensive PRR strategies for individuals who have reasonable grounds to believe are terrorists, including suspected foreign terrorist fighters (FTFs) and their accompanying family members, including spouses and children. To this end, the Global Programme on PRR supports the counter-terrorism efforts of Member States by providing guidance, coordination and capacity building in the prosecution, rehabilitation and reintegration of returning foreign terrorist fighters and their families as well as local supporters and affiliates of UN-listed terrorist groups. 

The United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT), United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED) launched the Global PRR Initiative with an aim to provide guidance to Member States on the development and implementation of comprehensive and tailored PRR Strategies. As part of the initiative, UNODC and CTED have been developing a Working Paper which captures the overview of the approaches being taken by Member States in the development and implementation of comprehensive and tailored PRR strategies, as well as of the risks inherent in partial and ad hoc programmes, building on the outcomes of the desk research and the discussions at the expert meetings held in Vienna (October 2019) and in Jakarta (February 2020).
