Intelligence – and Intelligence Oversight – has never appeared more in the public eye than it does today. Mainstream British media continues to focus on the role of the Intelligence Services in extraordinary rendition, the legislative framework surrounding control orders and stop and search powers, and on the alleged intelligence failures during the Iraq War. In addition, recent announcements by the Government have confirmed that the structure and operation of the Intelligence Community in the UK will be subject to two major reviews, the Strategic Defence and Security Review and the Counter-Terrorism Legislation Review. Both are likely to impact, dramatically, on the existing format of the Intelligence and Security Services in the UK.
This one-day conference is timed to coincide with the submission of both review reports. It seeks to explore recent developments in Intelligence Oversight and the ramifications of such developments in the context of current threats to UK Security.
Nature of Intelligence Oversight in the UK
The agencies and committees involved in Intelligence Oversight in the UK have been subject to a range of changes in recent years and will, in all likelihood, be subject to further changes following Governmental review. This session, featuring speakers from Government and Academic backgrounds, will identify recent developments in the Intelligence Oversight framework operating in the UK and the effects of these changes in the current security climate.
Failures in Intelligence Oversight? The Iraq War
The work of the Chilcott Inquiry has re-ignited the discussion on the role of intelligence in the lead-up to the Iraq War and during its conduct. This session will focus on the failures and lessons learned from the Iraq War, the potential failures of the Intelligence Oversight bodies during the conflict and provide lessons for the future. The discussion will be provided by speakers from Academic, Governmental and Diplomatic backgrounds.
Technology in Intelligence Oversight: Privacy and Security in the UK
Technology has increased our ability to identify and neutralise threats against UK security, but alongside these developments is increasing public concern about the right to individual privacy. This session will focus on the relationship between Civil Liberties and maintaining Security in the UK.
