CFP: Special Issue- Slavic Intelligence and Counterintelligence

Deadline for Submissions: July 1st, 2021

International Journal of Intelligence and CounterIntelligence has opened a Call for papers for a Special Issue on Slavic Intelligence and Counterintelligence.

The fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War initiated the processes of transformation of societies and states that were part of the Warsaw Pact and Non-Aligned Movement in the Eurasian region. During the Cold War, these states were maintained by the firm hand of a repressive system. Intelligence and security agencies were the function of a totalitarian one-party government. The crisis in Southeast Europe continues, a source of numerous security threats to the stability and security of Europe, the EU, and NATO. Intelligence and counterintelligence agencies/services were involved in the process of strong and intense social and political change. This special issue on Slavic intelligence
and counterintelligence is intended to stimulate academic discussion on their activities during and after the Cold War, and the process of a transition into today’s hybrid threats. We are interested in research focusing on the analysis of organizations, operations, and the impact of intelligence security agencies (or the intelligence community where it existed) in Slavic-speaking countries.
