Since 2002 the renowned Centre for Intelligence and International Security Studies based in the Department of International Politics at the University of Aberystwyth in Wales holds a biannual conference under yearly topics. In 2015, at the 7th proceeding, the focus lay on “Intelligence, Public Confidence and Security”. This year ACIPSS was represented for the first time at the gathering in the picturesque Gregynog, a conference centre of the University of Wales, by MMag. Paul Schliefsteiner. The JIPSS Review Editor spoke about public perception and debate on intelligence in the age of Snowden and the reign of the “Islamic State”, a topic that was met with a great interest by the audience. A publication of an article, based on the presentation is planned by the organizers. You can read a report on the conference in the upcoming JIPSS 2/2015.
