use of intelligence as an aid to policy-making and implementation, especially in foreign and security policy. Intelligence organisations are discussed as an element of government, and a part of different political systems around the world. Throughout, the emphasis is on practical issues and problems, and historical and contemporary case studies, including many from outside the Anglo-Saxon world. The course includes a realistic exercise in the application of intelligence to the management of a crisis. This year, the course will have more of the attributes of a seminar than usual, and, in particular, about half of the sessions will feature a short practical exercise of some kind. The course is taught by a former British government ofﬁcial with long experience of security policy questions in a number of countries around the world.
