Shamima Begum is a Muslim and former schoolgirl from London who travelled to Syria in 2015 to join Islamic State and subsequently married one of its fighters. She was stripped of her British citizenship in 2019, thereby preventing her return to the UK, and has been living in refugee camps in the Middle East. She has lodged an appeal, both against loss of citizenship and refusal to permit her entry to the UK, and, at the time of the survey, the case was before the UK’s Supreme Court.
