The Societal Reintegration of Prisoners Convicted of Terrorism Offences in Indonesia

The societal reintegration of former prisoners convicted of terrorism offences is an often overlooked aspect of a state’s counter-terrorism policy portfolio. In Indonesia, several hundred people have been released from prison in the past 10 years after serving sentences for involvement in or support for terrorism. Both state agencies and civil society organisations have worked towards facilitating their successful transition back into society, but resources appear to be modest and recent cases of recidivism suggest that efforts may be falling short. The present study seeks to evaluate initiatives to reintegrate former terrorist prisoners with Indonesian society. It will attempt to gauge the specific problems faced by returning prisoners, as well as state and non-state efforts to address the difficulties of readjusting to normal life.
