The forum is hosted by the Institute for Intelligence Studies of Mercyhurst University (IISMU), an institution dedicated to furthering partnerships in analysis across the globe. In keeping with the University’s holistic and generalist approach to the field, the conference combines input from these various disciplines for a conversation spanning the larger study of intelligence analysis.
Preparing Intelligence Analysts for the 21st CenturyThe Global Intelligence Forum intends to continue down the path of intelligence innovation and discovery we embarked on in July 2010. Then, we began by exploring the nature of analysis and its application in various intelligence professions. Later, in 2011, we discussed the interaction between the intelligence analyst/practitioner and the decision-maker. In July 2013 we hope to continue to build bridges between practitioners and scholars within intelligence related professions, and discuss emerging 21st century intelligence best practices.
