iIIRG REGIONAL CHAMPIONS

iIIRG is a collegiate space for academics and practitioners to share their experience and knowledge; creating collaborations and friendships that bridge the boundaries of profession, status or country.

Whether a practitioner or academic member if you are as passionate as we are to raise awareness and to promote ethical, effective investigative interviewing driven by high quality applied research in your part of the world we want to hear from you.

TESTIMONIALS

As investigators, we need to view academics as colleagues, helping develop new investigative strategies and proposals, and academics need to understand the limitations placed on investigators and attempt to liaise with them in a more accessible way. There is still often a gap between theory and practice, but an organisation like the iIIRG goes a long way to building a bridge and that can only be to everyone’s advantage.

Being a member of the iIIRG from the very beginning in 2007 has helped me to meet a vast number of amazing researchers and practitioners from around the globe. Although the focus of the group is very specific – investigative interviewing – the variety of research projects conducted by its members is amazing and I always look forward to hearing about the excellent and cutting-edge work at the annual conferences.
