Mission Statement

The Journal of European and American Intelligence Studies (JEAIS, formerly the Journal of Mediterranean and Balkan Intelligence —JMBI) is published by the Research Institute for European and American Studies (RIEAS). It is an international academic-led scholarly publication that focuses on the field of intelligence and related areas of study and practice, such as terrorism and counterterrorism, domestic and international security, geopolitics, and international relations.

The journal’s rationale is driven by the global nature of security challenges, where were are called more than ever to communicate and work collaboratively to solve our common problems. Thus, the JEAIS aspires to promote an international dialogue between diverse perspectives and experiences, based on original research on the broader European and American practice and study of intelligence.

The JEAIS is an all-inclusive academic platform that allows accomplished and emerging scholars and practitioners from both the public and private sectors, to share their knowledge, ideas and approach to intelligence studies. By crafting each journal issue through a rigorous and highly selective screening process of potential contributors, and an exhaustive review process, the JEAIS adheres to its mission, which is three-fold: (a) to provide an equal opportunity for academics and practitioners of intelligence to discuss and challenge established and emerging ideas; (b) to address existent knowledge gaps by advancing new knowledge; and (c) to shape the evolution of intelligence scholarship beyond traditional communities of research.
