9) Strategic principles to criminal investigations
Strategy is a wide collection of ideas and insights that have been used since time immemorial to face the ‘fog of war’. The analysis presented in this paper applied the concepts of strategy to criminal investigations. In order to apply them to modern criminal investigations, the paper borrowed ideas from historical masters of strategy: Sun Tzu and Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara; von Clausewitz, Lawrence ‘of Arabia’ and Mao Zedong, but also the doctrine of Special Forces. The paper wants to trigger a debate about the incorporation of strategic thinking into investigative practice and training. https://bulletin.cepol.europa.eu/index.php/bulletin/article/view/247
