Intelligence and policy: a powerful pairing

National Security College | Professional course


In an uncertain and complex world, intelligence informs – and can reduce uncertainty for – policymakers. Participants in this program will be expected to have a basic understanding of both intelligence and policy but will dive deeper into the role intelligence plays to support policymaking and learn more about how different agencies’ intelligence capabilities can be harnessed. Case studies will be used to explore the importance of understanding and overcoming bias and subjectivity when using intelligence in policy making.

This program will be offered twice in 2022– in April and in October. Participants are required to hold a minimum NV1 security clearance or equivalent.

Course date: 
9am 6 April – 5pm 7 April 2022
