BCISS Collaborating in ESRC Seminar Series ‘Intelligence and Government in the 21st Century’
BCISS is one of three collaborating organizations on a recently awarded ESRC Seminar Series Grant secured by BCISS Acting Director Dr. Philip H. J. Davies and Dr. Robert Dover. Entitled ‘Intelligence and Government in the 21st Century, the Seminar Series is being mounted jointly by BCISS, the Department of Politics, International Relations and European Studies at Loughborough University (www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/eu/) and the Security and Intelligence Studies Group of the UK Political Studies Association (www.sisg.org.uk).
‘Intelligence and Government in the 21st Century’ is intended to bring intelligence studies out of its specialist ghetto and encourage a closer dialogue with ‘mainstream’ political science practitioners. It will consist of six one-day workshops with contributors drawn from the , and continental Europe in 2008 and 2009. The current schedule runs:
Intelligence and Asymmetrical Warfare (September 22 2008, see below).
Intelligence and Public Administration: Reform and Reorganisation (October/November ‘08)
Intelligence, Globalisation and the Globalised State (November/December ’08)
Intelligence, Policy and Requirements (TBC, 2009)
Intelligence and the Media (TBC 2009)
Intelligence, Accountability and Oversight (TBC 2009)
The workshops will be hosted variously at Loughborough University , by BCISS on the Brunel University Campus, and at the Royal United Services Institute in concert with the British Study Group on Intelligence.
The series is being mounted and run in close coordination with a related seminar series organized by Professor Richard Aldrich at Warwick University on ‘The Future of UK Intelligence and Special Operations.’ Arrangements are in hand for selected papers from the BCISS-Loughborough- SISG seminar series to be published in Cambridge Review of International Affairs, Public Administration and Policy as well as in an edited volume to be published by Hurst .
