Chapter Summary

This chapter describes and examines some of the factors exerting formative and fundamental influences over the evolution of serious incident investigation as a paradigm, and draws some conclusions as to consequences for paradigm evolution. It is organized into two parts. The first part examines the nature of four primary context drivers which the author believes to be playing a crucial role in shaping the way in which operational incidents are conceptualized, managed, expressed, and assessed through a fundamentally legal prism. It examines influence and effects of law, technology, and the capacities of alternative investigating and assessment agents such as NGOs. The second part outlines three propositions that the author believes to be emerging paradigmatic 'maxims' within the domain of operational incident investigation, primarily as a consequence of the operation of law, technology, NGO capacities, and interconnectedness upon the evolution of this paradigm.

Keywords: emerging paradigm; NGO; operational incident investigation
