This is a delicate and unprecedented question facing the French government.

Should the children of French jihadists detained in Syria be repatriated?

France responds on a “case by case” basis to use the expression of the executive.

However, many voices are raised: NGOs, intellectuals, politicians of all stripes, psychiatrists... so that these children who have asked for nothing, who are more victims than guilty of their parents' mistakes can find France as soon as possible. quickly as possible.

Does a child returning from a war zone represent a risk for France?
