Chapter five completes the book’s account of the Northern Ireland example by analysing the remaining results that followed the use of the ‘five techniques’ there. Divergent opinions on whether intelligence was gained from this interrogation operation are identified and assessed, as is the impact this operation had on security in Northern Ireland, and the value of what intelligence was likely gained this way relative to other sources of intelligence. The impact of the ‘five techniques’ on the detainees who experienced them is identified, including the judgments of health professionals, and the award of compensation is discussed. Finally the chapter looks at the impact of the use of the ‘five techniques’ in Northern Ireland, and the publicity that accompanied it, on the UK’s international reputation, specifically its place in the Republic of Ireland’s case against the UK for alleged breaches of the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
