Investigating Corruption and Misconduct in Public Office  Second Edition provides accessible, authoritative and practical information about anti-corruption agencies. It discusses the substantive principles underpinning propriety and impropriety, public office and corruption. It complements this coverage with practical principles, techniques and strategies for investigating and preventing corruption.

Upon its initial publication in 2004, 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 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 federal, affecting these commissions’ powers and processes;  
  • Matters affecting permanent commissions of enquiry in New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania, in light of legislative amendments;  
  • The establishment of the new permanent Independent Broad-Based Anti-Corruption Commission (IBAC) in Victoria and its powers, procedures and other processes.    

Legal professionals, corruption investigators and public sector senior executives must address issues surrounding the identification and elimination of corruption. Investigating Corruption and Misconduct in Public Office  Second Edition provides essential guidance to these professionals and all those with an interest in the integrity of public entities and processes.
