Refugees: An International Perspective

Overview: Shared Responsibility Committees (SRC) By ADC Legal & Policy Director Abed Ayoub What is purpose of SRCs? To provide an alternative to prosecution of individuals deemed to be going down the path of radicalization. Structure Each SRC is organized on a local level A typical SRC will include:

Religious leader Teacher Mentor Mental Health professional Community Advocate/Organizational Head Each local SRC can have its own bylaws/structure How does it work? Step 1: Opening of Investigation The FBI gets a tip about an individual who they believe is heading down the path of

extremism. These tips could come from friends, family, community, or other law enforcement agencies. Troubled Youth The tips could range from Person A purchased 900 rounds of ammunition; to Person A is looking at suspect websites. FBI Agent/Field Office Important to note that no criminal charges have been brought, only an opening of an

investigation. The individual does not know the FBI has opened an investigation. How does it work? Step 2: Referral of Case to SRC The SRC Once a file is opened, the SRC is contacted by the FBI. The SRC is given the individuals name, and contact information.

How does it work? Step 3: Contact between SRC and Individual The SRC contacts the individual to arrange for meetings with the members. The individual does not need to know that the SRC is working with the FBI.

How does it work? Step 4: Meetings between SRC and Individual The individual will meet separate with members of the SRC. He will spend time talking to the teacher, the religious leader each separately. He will also spend time with a psychologist who will evaluate the individual and make a determination on their mental state of mind. The individual does not need to know that individuals are in contact with the FBI. The members do have the option of telling individuals, during these meetings, that they coordinating with the FBI.

the SRC the are Meanwhile The investigation by the FBI into the individual does not stop at any point. The investigation continues even as the SRC continues to meet with the individual.

How does it work? Step 5: SRC Makes Recommendation to FBI After meeting with the individual, the SRC convenes and makes a recommendation to the FBI. The SRC can give one of two recommendations: The individual seems to be ok, and there is no need to worry about radicalization. The individual seems to be trouble, and the FBI better stop him before he commits a terror act. The FBI is not bound by the decision of the

SRC, it is only a recommendation. Also, the FBI can ask for the notes from the meeting between the SRC and the individual this includes the notes collected by the medical professional and religious leader. What happens next? The FBI is not bound by the decision of the SRC, it is only a recommendation. Also, the FBI can ask for the notes from the meeting between the SRC and the individual this includes the notes collected by

the medical professional and religious leader. After the recommendation is made, the FBI decides how to proceed. They can close the investigation, or they can pursue charges against the individual. Regardless of the decision made, the individual is now on the FBI radar. Concerns This program is tantamount to an expanded FBI Informant program;

No clarity on how investigations are initiated; The conversations between the individuals and the medical professional are protected and cant be shared; same with the conversations with the religious leader; Members of the SRC receive no training; Members of the SRC may have their own biases; Members of the SRC can be called to testify at trial; Liability Concerns If the individual does in fact commit a terror attack, the members of the SRC can be held liable for their recommendation if they declared the individual poses no threat.
