Summary
In a world that is increasingly unstable, intelligence services such as the American CIA, the U.K.'s Secret Intelligence Service, and Israel's Mossad exist to deliver security and stability. Whether the challenge involves terrorism, cybersecurity, or the renewed specter of great power conflict, intelligence agencies mitigate threats and provide decisional advantage to national security leaders. But empowered intelligence services require adequate supervision and oversight, which must be about more than the narrow (if still precarious) task of ensuring the legality of covert operations and surveillance activities. This book is a comparative investigation of how democratic countries can govern their intelligence services so that they are effective, but operate within frameworks that are acceptable to their people in a complex and interconnected world. The book demonstrates how the institutions that oversee intelligence agencies participate in the protection of national security while safeguarding privacy and civil liberties, balancing among competing national interests, and building public trust in inherently secret activities. It does so by analyzing the role of organizations such as courts and independent oversight bodies as they operate in countries with both robust frameworks of constitutional law and powerful intelligence services. The volume also illuminates the ways in which new forces, such as global technology companies and courts whose jurisdiction crosses national boundaries, play an important role in intelligence oversight. As rapid changes in technology bring the world increasingly closer together, these forces will complement their more traditional counterparts in ensuring that intelligence activities remain effective, legitimate, and sustainable.--
