In September 2020, the Dutch criminal justice review Tijdschrift voor Sanctierecht Onderneming published my article Internal Investigations – an Overview, which is available for download in the Publications section of this site. (It is the only article in English that appears in that edition of the publication.) The article is neither academic nor strictly practical, in the sense that it does not purport to offer “how to” lessons in conducting internal investigations. Rather, it attempts to “take a step back” and address some basic questions about the function of internal investigations, of which there are several quite different examples. I believe that anyone contemplating engaging in a significant internal investigation would find the article useful.
