Held online on the 26th and 27th January 2022, the conference ‘Intelligence, surveillance, and oversight: tracing connections and contestations’ aimed to situate the research done in GUARDINT within a broader conversation with intelligence studies, security studies, and International Relations. Participants addressed the meaning of democratic oversight, practises of formal and informal oversight, the role of contestation, actors, and publics in holding intelligence and security actors accountable and transforming practices of (in)security and surveillance. They also discussed challenges that transnational cooperation between intelligence and security actors pose for oversight, as well as new digital technologies.
