The 24th edition of Intelligence in the Knowledge Society (IKS) International Conference opens on the 18th of October and is hosted by „Carol I” Central University Library. The 2018 edition brings to the fore complex aspects which involve the equilibrium between guaranteeing the national security of a state and protecting the fundamental rights of its citizens.
The conference aims to bring under the same umbrella various contemporary issues that are of interest to communities. For that purpose, IKS is structured into five panels, which are organised thematically, a special event dedicated to European security models and a session for emerging scholars in the field of security .
Some of the topics that will be covered include: social media influence campaigns, anti-western propaganda, intelligence models of the Far East, fake news, hybrid threats or soviet espionage actions against Romania in the 1950s.
Organized by „Mihai Viteazul” National Intelligence Academy and having reached its 24th edition, IKS continues the development of an international platform for academic debate. The conference brings together over 200 scholars and researchers in the field of intelligence and security studies from countries such as the United States, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Malta, Greece, Hungary, Romania, South Korea, China, the Republic of Moldova, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Bulgaria or Belgium.
