HIG symposium homepage


In response to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that prohibits the use of physical and psychological abuse in interrogations by U.S. personnel, the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group (HIG) has published a comprehensive report of its research findings to inform a review of the nation’s interrogation policy and practices.

The 2017 HIG Research Symposium will bring together expert practitioners and scientists to share the latest research findings. The symposium will also enable policy-makers and intelligence professionals to network with our team of world-leading psychologists from the U.S. and around the world.

This event will be held at the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington, DC. The symposium will provide unparalleled opportunities to discuss the challenges currently faced by law enforcement and intelligence interviewers and the ways in which ground-breaking research can improve the effectiveness of elicitation methods.
