What: As an outgrowth of the 6th consecutive meeting of Intelligence Community professionals and scholars in 2004, the International Association for Intelligence Education (IAFIE) was founded. From various intelligence disciplines including national security, law enforcement and competitive intelligence, the founding members of IAFIE recognized the need for a professional association to serve as a forum that would span their diverse disciplines and provide a catalyst and resources for their development of what generically is referred to as Intelligence Studies.

The goals of IAFIE are to:
  • Expand research, knowledge, and professional development in intelligence education;
  • Provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and information for those interested in and concerned with intelligence education;
  • Advance the intelligence profession by setting standards, building resources, and sharing knowledge in intelligence studies;
  • Foster relationships and cultivate cooperation among intelligence professionals in academia, business, and government;
  • Develop, disseminate, and promote theory, curricula, methodologies, techniques, and best practices for pure and applied intelligence;
  • Serve as a liaison between other professional organizations and centers of excellence
