Securing The State

Author: David Omand

ISBN: 9780190612948
Release Date: 2015-08-14
Genre: Political Science

Governments recognise that national security in the turbulent conditions of the early twenty-first century must centre on the creation of public confidence that normal life can continue even in the face of threats such as terrorism and proliferation, and of natural hazards such as pandemics and climate change. Based on his own experience in government, David Omand argues that while public security is vital for good government, the effects of bad government will result from failure to maintain the right relationship between justice, liberty, privacy, civic harmony and security measures. His book examines in detail how secret intelligence helps governments to deliver security, but also risks raising public concern over its methods. A set of ethical principles is proposed to guide intelligence and security work within the framework of human rights. Securing the State provides a new way of thinking about the cycle of activities that generates secret intelligence, examines the issues that arise from the way that modern intelligence uses technology to access new sources of information, and discusses how the meaning of intelligence can best be elucidated. The limits of intelligence in enabling greater security are explored, especially in guiding government in a world in which we must learn not to be surprised by surprise. Illustrated throughout by historical examples, David Omand provides new perspectives for practitioners and those teaching security and intelligence studies and for a wider readership offers an accessible introduction to pressing issues of public policy.

Democratic Control of Intelligence Services

Author: Dr Hans Born
Publisher: Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.
ISBN: 9781409498278
Release Date: 2013-03-28
Genre: Political Science

The events of September 11, 2001 sharply revived governmental and societal anxieties in many democratic countries concerning the threats posed by terrorism, organized crime, the proliferation and use of weapons of mass destruction, and other complex security threats. In many countries, public discourse of subjects traditionally considered part of social policy, such as immigration and asylum, have been securitized, while intelligence services have been granted greater resources and expanded powers. This comprehensive volume discusses the various challenges of establishing and maintaining accountable and democratically controlled intelligence services, drawing both from states with well-established democratic systems and those emerging from authoritarian systems and in transition towards democracy. It adopts a multidisciplinary and comparative approach, identifying good practices to make security services accountable to society and its democratic representatives. The volume will engage both academics and practitioners in the discussion of how to anchor these vital yet inherently difficult to control institutions within a firmly democratic framework. As such, it has clear relevance for these concerned with the control and oversight of intelligence and security issues in many countries.

Just War on Terror

Release Date: 2013-06-28
Genre: Religion

Following the 9/11 attacks by Al-Qa'ida, President Bush declared war on terror. In the succeeding years, Western governments have struggled to find the right way to respond to the new and deadly threat posed by terrorism. With the election of President Obama the rhetoric has softened and policies have been adjusted but the underlying problems and challenges remain the same. Meanwhile, the war on terrorism in Afghanistan has been intensified. Drawing on just war teaching as developed within both Christian and Muslim traditions, this book examines whether, and how, liberal democracies can combat the new global terrorism both effectively and justly. The authors, including distinguished academics from both sides of the Atlantic, Christian and Muslim theologians, former senior civil servants and a General, deploy a wide range of experience and expertise to address one of the most difficult and pressing ethical challenges to contemporary society.

Genre: Political Science

Terrorists are continuously learning to utilize the Internet as an accessible and cost-effective information infrastructure. Since a constant manual monitoring of terrorist-generated multilingual web content is not a feasible task, automated Web Intelligence and Web Mining methods are indispensable for efficiently securing the Web against its misuse by terrorists and other dangerous criminals. Web Intelligence and Security contains chapters by the key speakers of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Web Intelligence and Security that took place on November 18-20, 2009 in Ein-Bokek, Israel. This Workshop has brought together a multinational group of leading scientists and practitioners interested in exploiting data and text mining techniques for countering terrorist activities on the Web. Most talks were focused on presenting available methods and tools that can alleviate the information overload of intelligence and security experts. The key features of this book include: An up-to-date analysis of the current and future threats of the Internet misuse by terrorists and other malicious elements including cyberterrorism, terror financing and interactive online communication by terrorists and their supporters; Detailed presentation of the state-of-the-art algorithms and tools aimed at detecting and monitoring malicious online activities on the Web; Introduction of novel data mining and text mining methods that can be used to efficiently analyze the massive amounts of multi-lingual Web content; The book's wide audience includes research scientists, graduate students, intelligence analysts, and data / text mining practitioners.

Democracy Betrayed

Genre: Political Science

“A persuasive cri de coeur from a national security expert . . . makes a spirited case for preferring untrammeled freedom to managed and monitored safety.” —Kirkus Reviews In the aftermath of 9/11, in lockstep with booming technological advancements, a new and more authoritarian form of governance is supplanting liberal democracy. The creation of the Security Industrial Complex—an “internal security state-within-the-state” fueled by tech companies, private security firms, and the Intelligence Community to the tune of $120 billion a year—is intruding on civil liberties to an unprecedented extent. As a society, we have yet to comprehend the meaning of universal digital interconnection, its impact on our psychology, and its transformation of our government and society. America is at a crossroads in contending with a security goliath; allowing the beginnings of a police state, and the conversion of our “liberal democracy” to a “secure democracy”—one where government overreaches, tramples on civil liberties, and harnesses great advancements in technology to spy on the populace. Keller walks us through what these changes can mean to our society and, more importantly, what we can do to halt our march toward intrusive and widespread surveillance. “William Keller’s warning bell for democracy is both frightening and clarifying. We are caught into a rare convergence of technology and terrorism—both of which are overwhelming average citizens. Keller will help us think clearly about what we are facing.” —William Greider, author of One World, Ready or Not and national correspondent for The Nation
