The Security and Intelligence Specialist Group is concerned with the broad range of topics that fall under intelligence and security studies.

The group actively welcomes scholars, practitioners and researchers who work on any aspect of security or intelligence.

SISG attends the PSA conference with specialist panels, and in 2019 will host a research conference for members of the group. To join the linkedin page, navigate to the following page and request to join

The PSA’s network of 60 Specialist Groups offers a research focus for all members and covers a vast range of specialities within the discipline. SGs provide an opportunity for groups of academics who share a common interest in a particular area of the discipline to organise meetings, coordinate communications, and as outlets for research – as well as giving PSA members opportunities for developing their academic impact and professional development.”
