Abstract

Discusses, with reference to case law, systematic problems relating to the welfare of children, notably with regard to child sexual abuse. Examines issues surrounding the quality of interviews with children in Scotland, serious causes for concern with the quality of such interviews in areas such as forensic interviewing and the absence of recorded interviews, the results of a survey of 91 police interviewers on their perceptions of how well they adhered to the Scottish Executive's Joint Investigative Interview Technique guidelines, the relevance to the interests of justice in Scotland, and the role of video recording investigative interviews.
