This interrogation scenario is designed to provide students an opportunity to identify some key personality and environmental issues which interrogators must take into account when selecting an interrogation "approach." The scenario is based on a military peacekeeping mission in Kosovo. The information gaps in the scenarios are intentional as interrogators will rarely have all of the information needed to correctly assess a situation/event.
Final Research Paper/Project – 40 percent
Interrogations in Guantanamo: This final assignment is to look back at what you have learned and answer the question: "How effective do you believe the interrogations are that are conducted today in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and how could they be improved?"
