Diplomatic Academy of the Caribbean hosts security intelligence training
Published on August 28, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- National security intelligence is witnessing a paradigm shift in the 21st century where new transnational security challenges have appeared, along with the realisation that security issues are interconnected around the globe. The Diplomatic Academy of the Caribbean’s fifth training module examines these challenges with specific reference to the Caribbean region.

Themed Intelligence, Statecraft and Multi-dimensional Security in the Caribbean, the week-long training will take place from September 8 to September 12, 2014 at the University of The West Indies, St Augustine campus in Trinidad and Tobago.

The training will arm participants with the know-how to identify new and existing threats to local and regional environments within and beyond the periphery of the Caribbean. Its aim is to enlighten the diplomatic-minded about the structure and functions of security intelligence needed to counteract these threats in the global environment of the 21st century.

Angela Gendron and Martin Rudder, two visiting experts from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, will facilitate the module.

Angela Gendron, a senior fellow at the Canadian Centre of Intelligence and Security Studies (CCISS), is also a published author on the subject of intelligence ethics and an academic with tremendous experience in the field from her career as a British Crown servant at the Ministry of Defence in the UK.

She will be joined by Martin Rudner, Professor at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University and founding Director of the Canadian Centre of Intelligence and Security Studies at Carleton. Professor Rudner has authored over 90 books and scholarly articles relating to international affairs, including security and intelligence studies.
