And another small advertisement strictly in self-interest. In October 2009 I have been invited to deliver a presentation at the annual conference of the Intelligence History Association at Bar Ilan University in Ramat Gan, Israel. I was working on the topic of security sector reform for quite a while and focused on intelligence services in particular. So, here now, is my most recent article on security sector reform and intelligence services in Sub-Sahara Africa, which appeared in the current issue of the African Security Review. I am still working on the topic and shifted focus a bit: I am particularly interested in the impact of African socialism on the armed forces in Sub-Sahra Africa and superpower involvement during the Cold War. So there might be more to come.
