The Intelligence Community


Thu, 01/03/2018 (All day)

This project is centred around understanding and engaging with the practice and oversight of surveillance and monitoring activities conducted by State intelligence agencies, with a particular focus on bulk monitoring techniques.  

The project consists of 4 workshops, each engaging key stakeholders and focused on issues identified as key considerations with respect to intelligence practice and oversight: 

Workshop A: The Intelligence Community

  • The goal of this workshop is to bring together representatives of different intelligence agencies in order to discuss their distinct approach to key oversight issues.
  • Identified discussion points include:
    • How is ‘necessity’ evaluated?
    • How is ‘proportionality’ evaluated?
    • How is data collection regulated?
    • How is access to collected data regulated?
    • If/how is data shared between intelligence and law enforcement agencies?
  • This meeting will be held under Chatham House Rules.
  • It is intended to invite representatives of the UK, Israel, US, Germany, France and Sweden, as well as members of the IPC.
