About the conference

‘The Role of Intelligence in Combating Terrorism’ is a three day conference that will highlight the importance of intelligence and is aimed at:

·        Professionals and practitioners of security organizations

·        Academics and researchers of relevant fields

·        Politicians and diplomats

The conference will provide an opportunity for the participants to understand the concepts, processes of intelligence and future challenges in a rapidly changing world. Threats posed by terrorism and CBRN weapons to the world will also be discussed at this conference with reference to the role of intelligence.

The world of intelligence completely transformed at the end of the Cold War. Whilst this major change broadened the focus of intelligence into other areas, in an age of information, the intelligence services faced with the difficulty of distinguishing the important from the urgent. Post 9/11 has highlighted many of the failures in intelligence systems hitherto ignored. The lack of quality assurance aspects of these services was vociferously known to the world after the 9/11 catastrophe. Now supported by new legislation, and a new set of beliefs and values, the intelligence services are in the process of rectifying and reviewing their quest to ensure their success.

The participants of this conference will be given an opportunity to share their views with experts in these fields. Major issues raised and solutions resulted will be eventually forwarded to relevant security and intelligence services at the end of this conference. In this context, this conference is based on an interactive, pragmatic forum. This will give your organization, research centre, or you as an individual involved in relevant fields to contribute to the valuable work of security and intelligence services.
