    I especially recommend this one: The Intelligence War on Terrorism
    Daniel Byman, Vol. 29, Iss. 6, 2014
    What is the role of intelligence for counterterrorism? Most studies of counterterrorism ignore the vital role of intelligence, focus only on its most controversial aspects, or fail to recognize how counterterrorism intelligence differs from traditional intelligence issues. This article argues that many of the common criticisms of the CIA and other agencies misunderstand counterterrorism intelligence and what is realistic for gaining information on terrorist groups.

    Bureaucratic Resistance to International Intelligence Cooperation – The Case of Europol
    Björn Fägersten, Vol. 25, Iss. 4, 2010
    This article analyses the gap between government ambitions and actual outcomes in the case of European counter terrorism intelligence cooperation. Specifically, it investigates why Europol has not managed to live up to its tasks despite outspoken government support.

    Intelligence Dilemma? Contemporary Counter-terrorism in a Liberal Democracy
    Julian Richards, Vol. 27, Iss. 5, 2012
    The post-9/11 period and its emphasis on tackling terrorism has had a fundamental impact on the business of intelligence, not least in raising some very difficult ethical issues to the forefront of debate. The questions posed by the new threat picture for such states offer something of an ‘intelligence dilemma', which must balance the provision of good security with respecting civil liberties and ensuring the continued support of the population for security and intelligence policy.

    A Decade of EU Counter-Terrorism and Intelligence: A Critical Assessment
    Javier Argomaniz, Oldrich Bures, and Christian Kaunert, Vol. 30, Iss. 2-3, 2015
    The Treaty on the European Union (EU) stipulates that one of the key objectives of the Union is to provide citizens with a high level of safety within an Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (AFSJ). Given that the fight against terrorism is a prominent aspect of this general objective, it is remarkable that, in spite of its political relevance and decade-long history, it has only relatively recently received due attention in the academic community.

    Counter-Terrorism, Security and Intelligence in the EU: Governance Challenges for Collection, Exchange and Analysis
    Monica Den Boer, Vol. 30, Iss. 2-3, 2015
    In this article we seek to address the emerging role of the European Union (EU) as a security and intelligence actor from the perspective of counter-terrorism. A range of agencies has been established that collect, analyze and operationalize intelligence in view of strategically defined security threats. This article makes an inventory of their roles and competences in the field of intelligence and looks at the list of instruments that encourage the sharing of intelligence between different law enforcement and security agencies.

    From Convergence to Deep Integration: Evaluating the Impact of EU Counter-Terrorism Strategies on Domestic Arenas
    Monica Den Boer and Irina Wiegand, Vol. 30, Iss. 2-3, 2015
    With the 2001 EU Action Plan and the 2005 EU Counterterrorism Strategy, the European Union has unfolded a roadmap for counter-terrorism measures and an itinerary of actions to be undertaken by the Member States. This article seeks to take stock of whether all proposals have led to the full adoption and implementation of instruments.

    Border Controls as a Dimension of the European Union's Counter-Terrorism Policy: A Critical Assessment
    Sarah Le´onard, Vol. 30, Iss. 2-3, 2015
    This article critically examines the use and effectiveness of border controls in the European Union (EU)'s counter-terrorism policy. It shows that the EU has made substantial progress towards achieving the objectives that it had set for itself in this policy area, but has not managed to fulfil all of them, and certainly not by the deadlines originally set.

    Intelligence reform: The logic of information sharing
    Calvert Jones, Vol. 22, Iss. 3, 2007
    A cornerstone of US intelligence reform is ‘information sharing’ as a means of adapting to contemporary security challenges. Yet the underlying logic of information sharing for intelligence reform has received little attention. Drawing on information and communications theory, this paper critiques the logic by highlighting problems of sense-making and interpretation overlooked amid the scholarly enthusiasm for an intelligence ‘culture of sharing’.

    Connecting Intelligence and Theory: Intelligence Liaison and International Relations
    Adam D.M. Svendsen, Vol. 24, Iss. 5, 2009
    Intelligence liaison increased exponentially during the so-called ‘War on Terror’. Today it continues as the most significant dimension of intelligence, including impacting on accountability and oversight considerations. Nevertheless, the intelligence liaison phenomenon remains largely under-studied and substantially under-theorized. In this article, preliminary suggestions are offered concerning how this dearth of theory can be addressed.
