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 who have a basic understanding of both intelligence and policy will get the opportunity to 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 policymaking.

Participants are required to hold a minimum NV1 security clearance.

This program will be offered twice in 2023.
