International Association for Intelligence Education (IAFIE) Essay Competition 2013

International Association for Intelligence Education (IAFIE) Essay Competition 2013

Essay contestThe 2013 essay competition of the International Association for Intelligence Education is hereby opened. This essay competition promotes IAFIE’s goal of providing a forum for the creation of knowledge and the dissemination and exchange of ideas and information for those interested in and concerned with intelligence education.


Please answer ONE of the following questions in your essay:

Supporting this year’s IAFIE theme “expanding the frontiers of intelligence education” we developed four essay questions that explore the idea of integration across standing borders. The four questions are:

1. Innovations in cross-disciplinary instruction within intelligence education and training (collections-analysis or other innovative ideas): what works and why?

2. Domestic and national intelligence priorities: how can national intelligence organizations better work with domestic, state and local to address homeland security needs?

3. Breaking down the border between training and education: what and how can the two communities learn from each other?

4. New frontiers of education: online intelligence education and training and how it will affect intelligence practice
