In the words of the editors, “the book analyses the different activities that make up the intelligence process, or the ‘intelligence cycle’, with a focus on changes brought about by external developments in the international arena, such as technology and security threats. Drawing together a range of key thinkers in the field, The Future of Intelligence examines possible scenarios for future developments, including estimations about their plausibility, and the possible consequences for the functioning of intelligence and security services.”

I was happy to contribute a chapter titled European Intelligence Cooperation. My chapter offers general insights into the incentives and disincentives of international intelligence cooperation as well as an analysis of current cooperation structures in Europe and their background and challenges.
