    Abstract

    This paper reviews work that has examined various law enforcement approaches tointerviewing Islamist extremists. Traditionally interrogative methods have been thepreferred tactic in which little attempt has been made to form rapport with the suspect andin which threats and fear form a strong element. This paper critically evaluates suchapproaches and makes suggestions about improved methods. In particular it stresses theimportance of rapport based interviews and the value of an understanding of the culturalhistory and expectations of the suspect in maximizing information obtained during aninterview.
