About the event:
A seminar discussion led by Sir John Scarlett KCMG, Senior Research Fellow at the Royal United Services Institute.
Entitled the Prospects for Intelligence, this seminar seeks to examine current trends in the field of intelligence, such as cyber-espionage, the proliferation of non-state intelligence actors, and shifting norms vis a vis the judiciary. The seminar will be opened by Sir John Scarlett before turning over to a general discussion.
Sir John Scarlett served as Chief of the British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS or MI6) from August 2004 to October 2009. He joined SIS in 1971 and over the next 20 years served in Nairobi, Paris and twice in Moscow as well as several assignments in London covering the Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. His second time in Moscow (1991-1994) coincided with the end of the USSR and the early years of the Russian Federation. In early September 2001 he retired from SIS on appointment as Chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee in the UK Cabinet Office. He rejoined SIS as Head of the Service in 2004.
