Intelligence Scholarship
I am one of the very few British intelligence and security studies scholars approaching the subject in policy analysis and social science terms rather than historical study. Conceptually, I am mainly concerned with organisational analysis of intelligence institutions and the theory of 'intelligence culture'. I approach these studies in terms of both national case studies (chiefly in the UK) and transnational comparative analysis. My principal publications in these areas are:
Joint Intelligence Doctrine

During 2010 my team and I were contracted by the MoD's Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre and Defence Intelligence to help produce the latest iteration of the British military Joint Intelligence Doctrine and a new, innovative doctrine on 'understanding' for operational commanders.

I remain involved in the on-going intelligence doctrine programme as a member of the 2* Steering Committee on Intelligence Doctrine.
