Special research seminar: “Bringing in the Public: Intelligence on the frontier between state and civil society”

The theme of the special issue will be "Bringing in the Public: Intelligence on the frontier between state and civil society”. As the title of the special issue indicates, how intelligence services traditionally have worked on the frontier between state practices of national security and normal democratic politics – having to manage that of being at once a security organization and a ‘normal Weberian bureaucracy’ – will be the core of the featured papers. This frontier and the challenges that follow from this organizational setup, manifest itself in the communication practices via-a-vis the public (through the use of social media, public threat assessments, partnerships etc) - practices that all implicate civil society in new and sometimes unexpected ways.

8 articles will be featured.

As always, coffee and tea will be served!
