Jihadist and former British citizen (b. 1999)

Shamima Begum is a stateless British woman, who left the UK aged 15 to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Syria. Her attempt to return to the UK in 2019 resulted in litigation culminating in a decision of the Supreme Court, and public debate about the handling of returning Islamic extremists. In February 2019, the Home Secretary acting for the Government of the United Kingdom revoked her British citizenship. He later stated that she would never be allowed to return.
