CERL Advisory Council member Mark Fallon sat down with Dave Thompson of WZ All Access to talk about the Méndez Principles and the future of investigative interviewing.
According to Fallon, “These principles set the framework for the design and development of processes that will elicit accurate, reliable information from human beings that still preserve human rights. One of the things that we wanted to make sure it preserves is human dignity—the dignity not only of the person interrogated but also of the interrogator.”
Mark Fallon is a leading national security expert, expert witness, acclaimed author and is a co-founder/director of Project Aletheia at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Fallon was a member of the 15-person international steering committee of experts overseeing the development of the Méndez Principles on Effective Interviewing for Investigations and Information Gathering.
