Delivered by Cranfield School of Security Sector Management, this course is designed to develop an understanding of the function of intelligence, the need for intelligence reform in new democracies, the obstacles to reform and the key institutions for managing the reform process and overseeing the intelligence services.
Successful strategic level management in the security sector, particularly transition bringing in transparency, oversight and accountability must include reform of the state apparatus for gathering, analysing and making best use of information and intelligence as well as setting up special oversight and managing accountability. This is a unique and very important course therefore for all practitioners and students of security and justice sector transformation, not just for those particularly engaged in the specialised sphere of intelligence. Those involved in the democratic process, media, and civil society in justice and security, as well as officials in government and critically, those involved as donors or recipients in the acceptance and implementation of change programmes in security and justice will find Professor Laurie Nathan's extensive and profound understanding of these too often disregarded areas totally rewarding.
