iafie18Last year Bob de Graaf (University of Ultrecht and Netherlands Defense Academy, Breda, The Netherlands) and James M. Nyce (Ball State University, USA) started a project on an edited volume about lesser-known European Intelligence Communities. The idea behind the volume is that intelligence studies are still focused on four countries: The US, the UK, Russia (and the former Soviet Union), and Israel. Since many European nations now have some kind of academic intelligence studies the need for information about the intelligence communities of other European nations has increased.

During the conference the group expressed an interest in institutionalizing its cooperation beyond the book project. As most of the authors are working in academia teaching intelligence studies, it was decided that the most logical way of doing so would be to establish the group as the starting point of a European chapter of International Association for Intelligence Education (IAFIE). The Group decided unanimously to have Siegfried Beer (Austria), Bob de Graaf (the Netherlands), Pierre Memheld (France) and John M. Nomikos (Greece) on the first board of this European chapter.
