Professor of Law Jacqueline Ross is co-director of the UCLA-Illinois-Princeton Comparative Law Work in Progress Workshop. At the Academy, she will complete Undercover Under Scrutiny (Cambridge), the first sustained comparison of how the United States, Germany, Italy, and France conceptualize and regulate covert operations. The book draws on approximately 300 interviews conducted since 2001 and highlights organized-crime investigations and several emerging areas of undercover policing: sting operations against suspected terrorists, cyber-infiltration, and the use of undercover tactics against human-trafficking rings.
