20th Anniversary Conference
Future of Intelligence:
Closing remarks Chairman NISA
The NISA 2011 International Conference on The Future of Intelligence closed last Saturday afternoon, 28 May 2011. This conference marked the 20th anniversary of NISA. I am proud to note that in the 20 years of its existence NISA and many of its members have contributed substantially to the evolution and maturing of intelligence and security in The Netherlands, of its institutions and of intelligence and security studies at academic level. NISA itself has developed into a well established network which continues to grow to date. Its members are involved in many research projects, as well as in academic programs at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands Defence Academy and -in the near future- at the University of Utrecht. I am also happy to note that many of the security institutions in The Netherlands now do recognize NISA as a useful organization and support our activities. I think this conference on the Future of Intelligence is proof of that
Looking back at the event itself, my personal impression is that we have had a good and lively conference with high quality speakers coming from a great variety of backgrounds. I also quite liked the mixture of formats with plenary sessions, mini-panels, workshops and debate. The closing panel debate was, I believe, an excellent example of this. Moreover, judging from the lively conversations and discussions during breaks, the conference provided an excellent opportunity to informally exchange views and expand networks of all involved.
NISA is grateful to the distinguished speakers and the conference chairman who participated in the program. It is after all their contribution and their willingness to share their knowledge and experience with us, which have made this conference a very interesting one. Many of them have travelled considerable distances to be with us. We thank them very much for that and look forward to working with them in the near future.
NISA is particularly pleased with both the high number as well as the great variety in backgrounds and affiliations of those who attended the conference. We thank all of them for taking an interest in our programs and we hope to see many of them again in the near future. On behalf of NISA I sincerely hope that the conference has also met their expectations as an audience.
a conference like this would not be possible without a lot of hard work
and dedication on the part of large group of NISA members: moderators,
rapporteurs, board members giving back-up support and of course the
Organizing Committee. On behalf of NISA, speakers and conference participants
it is my privilege as well as my pleasure to say 'thank you' to all.

NISA publicatie in de maak: Sporen van spionage
Van de hand van NISA-leden verschenen al eerder de bundels Duister Den Haag en Duister Amsterdam. Deze boekjes namen de lezer mee langs prachtige gevels waarachter in het verleden iets met spionage, contraspionage of andere activiteiten van inlichtingen- en veiligheidsdiensten van doen is geweest. Nu zijn Den Haag en Amsterdam niet de enige steden in Nederland waar het inlichtingenwerk zijn sporen heeft nagelaten. Door heel Nederland zijn er lieux de mémoire te vinden die getuigen van verleden spionageactiviteiten. Om in die leemte te voorzien zijn enkele leden van de NISA momenteel bezig om tot een dekking van heel Nederland te komen. Onder de werktitel 'Sporen van spionage' worden uit alle twaalf de Nederlandse provincies plekken, plaatsen en panden uitgelicht waar activiteiten van spionage hun sporen achter lieten.
