Working closely with the Co-Chairs of the Programme, Sir Richard Dearlove, former Head of the British Secret Intelligence Service and current Master of Pembroke College, and Professor Christopher Andrew, Emeritus Professor of Modern and Contemporary History and founder of the Intelligence Seminar at the University of Cambridge, Pembroke offers a unique opportunity to work with leading practitioners and academics from the security and intelligence communities in an exploration of the ‘craft of intelligence’.

Led by Programme Convenors Dr Michael Goodman and Dr David Gioe, the programme will explore the role of intelligence and security agencies in a democratic society, applying the twin principles of intelligence and security to 21st century problems. With an emphasis on contemporary and future challenges and practice, this course will appeal to those with a professional or academic interest in statecraft and the interlocking themes of intelligence, security, defence, and foreign policy formation and implementation.

This Pembroke course brings together a uniquely experienced group of speakers. For serious scholars of the world of intelligence and security services and their interface with government this course will be amongst the very best available anywhere. I am very pleased to be so closely associated with it and it extends the initiative we have developed in Pembroke College to offer summer courses of outstanding academic quality.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Sir Richard Dearlove
