The nature of terrorism is constantly evolving and most countries of the world today

Are faced with the threat of terrorism. In response, states have amped up their

Efforts to capture terrorists who are threatening their civilians. As a result, the

Number of inmates who were convicted of terrorism is on the rise throughout the

Globe. This has brought a number of challenges to the fore, including the potential

Use of prisons as hubs of radicalization, recruitment and planning by terror groups. 

This workshop will detail the issues that law enforcement agencies are facing around

The world as a result of the increased incarceration of inmates who were convicted

Of terrorism. This will include discussions of inmate placement, methods for

Intelligence collection from inmates, division of inmates, effectively accompanying

inmates after their release and countering radicalization
