Call for Papers: Connecting Intelligence Education Communities

Appels à candidature


Connecting Intelligence Education Communities: Europe, North America, and Beyond, Twelfth Annual IAFIE Conference and First Annual Conference of IAFIE’s European Chapter in Breda, The Netherlands, June 22-24, 2016

In recent years, there has been a growth in academic intelligence studies outside the traditional Anglosphere. In Europe, the study of intelligence has sprung up, enabling the establishment of a European Chapter of the International Association for Intelligence Education (IAFIE) in early 2015. In a combined annual conference of both IAFIE and its European chapter the central question will be whether there is ground for a common type of intelligence research and intelligence teaching throughout the world, and to what extent national or regional specificities influence the study and teaching of intelligence. Practitioners and scholars from North America, Europe and beyond are invited to address common issues and discuss recent and foreseeable developments in the practice and the teaching of intelligence. Now that a host of scholars and practitioners outside the Anglosphere has become involved in intelligence education, a demand for teaching materials that do justice to the peculiarities of their own intelligence systems is needed. The question may be posed whether the Anglophone intelligence systems and studies should be the model or whether they are unique when compared to the rest of the world. In a world that is confronted with transnational security risks, in which diversely composed coalitions of nations collaborate to counter threats, it is important to get an insight into the different ways nations think about, train and practice intelligence. With a variety of keynote speakers and a broad array of panels, the IAFIE conference intends to further explore these questions and provide the beginning of an answer to them, thereby contributing to both the public understanding of intelligence and the quality of intelligence teaching and practice.
