    Investigating Corruption and Misconduct in Public Office: Commissions of Inquiry – Powers and Procedures, second edition provides a comprehensive examination of the law concerning the jurisdiction, powers and inquisitorial processes of commissions of inquiry.

    Commissions of inquiry, such as Royal Commissions, are a powerful and effective means with which to identify and expose the truth concerning wrongdoing. State anti-corruption commissions are investigative bodies with far-reaching, coercive powers to identify and expose corruption and other forms of misconduct in public office.

    There are important issues surrounding the procedures and powers of such bodies, including the extent to which fundamental civil rights - including the right to privacy, the right of silence, the privilege against self-incrimination and the right to reputation - may be affected by these.

    It is essential for legal practitioners, those in government and public administration, and law enforcement agencies to understand the powers, practice and procedures of powerful commissions of inquiry. It is equally so for citizens participating as witnesses or persons of interest in the proceedings.

    Since the first edition every State and the Northern Territory has established an anti-corruption commission and the Australian Capital Territory has created an integrity commission.

    Following its 2004 publication, this work quickly became a significant point of reference in relation to the laws, principles, jurisdictional structure and practical operation of anti-corruption legislation and agencies in Australia.

    This long-awaited second edition has been significantly restructured and updated. It reflects more than a decade of activity by commissions of inquiry and state-based crime commissions, and by governments legislating in relation to public integrity, public trust obligations, corruption offences, organized crime and other matters.

    Features of this work include:

    Expert analysis of the common law;

    Legislative schemes for public corruption investigation and prevention bodies (such as the ICAC); and

    Detailed analysis of the powers, investigative processes, and methodologies of corruption investigation.

    New developments discussed in the Second Edition include:

    Amendments to Royal Commission legislation, both State and Commonwealth, affecting these commissions’ powers and processes; and

    Matters affecting permanent commissions of inquiry in New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania, in light of legislative amendments.

    Legal professionals, corruption investigators and public sector senior executives must address issues of integrity in government and public administration, and the issues surrounding the identification and elimination of corruption.

    Investigating Corruption and Misconduct in Public Office: Commissions of Inquiry – Powers and Procedures, second edition provides essential guidance to these professionals and all those with an interest in the integrity of public entities and processes.
