The quest for quality in fact-finding

Just a very short post to bring your attention to a book you may have already seen as it was published at the end of 2013 but did not have time to read yet. Quality Control in Fact-Finding edited by Morten Bergsmo and which is available in open access here (a feature always important to recall in those times of heated debates on open access) makes an invaluable contribution towards filling a gap in the literature on fact-finding.

Quality being at the heart of any credible fact-finding process, this concept is at times limited to few methodological issues. However this book offers very diverse perspectives and understandings on what quality means, both from a theoretical and practical point of view, when conducting fact-finding. It is a must read!

If you really do not have time to do so, you can check a very good book review in the European Journal of International Law by James Devaney whose doctoral research focuses on the use of evidence before international courts and tribunals. If you still do not have time to read this book over the summer, you can also have a look at another review by your faithful blogger just published yesterday through advance access in the Journal of International Criminal Justice.
