The past decade has seen renewed focus on the need for democratic oversight of intelligence communities in Western democracies. In this book academic and policy experts synthesise developments in Australia, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, the United States and United Kingdom.
Legal and administrative frameworks, executive prerogatives and power - and their potential abuses, operational work and analytical tradecraft, crisis management, human rights, state-sponsored detention and interrogation policy and the separation of powers are discussed.
