secjamBEYOND CONVENTIONAL SECURITY CHALLENGES

An increasingly uncertain global security context, the rise of Daesh, Russia-NATO tensions and the refugee crisis form the backdrop of the 2016 Security Jam between April 25-28. This global brainstorm is held entirely online and in writing only. It unites thousands of experts on security, human rights and development from government, international organisations, NGOs, academia, business and the media to develop innovative solutions to global security challenges.

The Jam will feed into the EU's thinking on a new Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy and into NATO's upcoming Warsaw summit. Your recommendations will be shared with decision-makers and experts around the globe. Read more

intelligence103The Research Institute for European and American Studies (RIEAS) introduces the Global Security and Intelligence Studies (GSIS) presented by the Policy Studies Organisations (PSO).

Aims and Scope

Global Security and Intelligence Studies (GSIS) is a bi-annual, peer-reviewed, open access publication designed to provide a forum for the academic community and the community of practitioners to engage in dialogue about contemporary global security and intelligence issues. The journal welcomes contributions on a broad range of intelligence and security issues, and from across the methodological and theoretical spectrum. The journal especially encourages submissions that recognize the multidisciplinary nature of intelligence and security studies, and that draw on insights from a variety of fields to advance our understanding of important current intelligence and security issues. In keeping with the desire to help bridge the gap between academics and practitioners, the journal also invites articles about current intelligence and security related matters from a practitioner perspective. In particular, GSIS is interested in publishing informed perspectives on current intelligence and security related matters. GSIS welcomes the submission of original empirical research, research notes, and book reviews. Papers and research notes that explicitly demonstrate how a multidisciplinary approach enhances theoretical and practical understanding of intelligence and security matters are especially welcome...

MY INTENT IN WRITING THE 3 MANUALS

My intent is to incorporate solution for UNCERTAINTY in warfare in existing Doctrine. Uncertainty leads to Surprise, something which is the primary Endeavour of any Commander in warfare. Indications and Warning surely affords a solution, but indications and warning often leads to a reactive intelligence collection. we wait until a new capability or weapons system is discovered, that capability or system is implemented by the enemy with devastating results, still we cannot counter it as it being new we do not have a defence system nor a counter-system , and by the time we develop it they have either have had sufficient time to test it practically on us and develop it further or we have had terrible losses in our armed forces , installation, C2 nodes or for that matter overall defeat.

In the spring and summer of 1943, the Nazis deported 47,000 Jews from the city of Salonika, Greece to the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in Poland. An estimated 1,000 of these deportees escaped death and returned to Salonika to find their properties looted and occupied by Christian "trustees" appointed during the Nazi occupation. Until 1943, Salonika, the second largest Greek city, was the "Jerusalem of the Balkans" thanks to its flourishing Jewish Community dating back to the early times after the birth of Christ...Read more

Al Qaeda became a household name on September 11, 2001, but the organization that changed the face of terrorism and unleashed a whirlwind of conflict and chaos had been on the scene long before that eventful morning. In Al Qaeda, the Islamic State, and the Global Jihadist Movement: What Everyone Needs to Know, Daniel Byman presents a concise overview of Al Qaeda's trajectory: its humble origins in Afghanistan, its indecisive early years, its explosive transformation into a global brand and ideology, and its gradual decline and potential usurpation by rivals.
