Event description

Description

Intelligence has many meanings. Understanding secret intelligence, what it can and cannot do, how it is managed and deployed, how it supports government decision-making and action, now forms part of an increasing number university degree programmes. Wider society also has an interest in the topic. This presentation aims to provide food for thought and act as a catalyst for a wider debate.

Claire Smith was a British diplomat for 27 years. In an unconventional career, she worked in China, Pakistan, Germany and Switzerland, including a secondment to the German Foreign Ministry.

Claire was Deputy Chief of Assessments Staff in the Cabinet Office and a member of the UK Joint Intelligence Committee.

She has just completed an eight year term as a member of the UK Security Vetting and Appeals Panel.

Since 2007, Claire has been Visiting Professor and Visiting Lecturer at a number of UK universities, contributing a former practitioner's perspective on postgraduate diplomacy, intelligence and security programmes. She has also worked overseas delivering vocational training. Claire has just completed an MSc at Oxford. She is also a charitable trustee at large education charity.
