The Center for Intelligence, Propaganda and Security Studies (ACIPSS) of Graz University will host the 2018 Annual Conference of the International Intelligence History Association (IIHA) “New Perspectives on the Role of Intelligence in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe”.

Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe have experienced several transitions and transformations since World War I. The fall of empires led to new paths for state and nationbuilding, often based on ideological orientation and choice: fascist, communist and western democratic. Old but also new patterns of security and insecurity emerged, highlighting the need for security at home and alertness abroad. As a consequence, intelligence in its broadest sense became a major ingredient in politics and diplomacy, both at the level of the nation-state and of the society of states.

In the year 2018, a century of nigh on revolutionary developments in matters of intelligence calls for new historical assessment and comparison. Thus the conference organizers are seeking original papers dealing with all aspects relating to intelligence issues in these regions, including but not limited to case studies on the experiences of individual countries and/or regional blocs, including non-governmental actors. They also specifically invite papers on comparative intelligence historiography on these regions. The period covered is from the Austro-Hungarian Empire until today.

Please submit your panel or paper proposal abstract of 200-300 words and your detailed CV by email to Anna Abelmann at: exec_director[at]intelligencehistory[dot]org

Notifications of acceptance will go out by the end of February 2018.

Conference presenters are invited to submit their revised paper in form of an article to the Association’s Journal of Intelligence History (JIH) or to ACIPSS’ Journal for Intelligence, Propaganda and Security Studies (JIPSS). 

Conference Venue:  Bildungshaus Mariatrost, Kirchbergstraße 18, 8044 Graz, Österreich
