Joint EU Intelligence School (JEIS)

Joint EU Intelligence School (JEIS)

Summary: JEIS is a training establishment for intelligence, set up as a PESCO programme. It is being set up by Greece, in Cyprus.

At stake: Long term risks of homogenising national intelligence services – while sited in an espionage hotspot!

What they say: “The project on Joint EU Intelligence School aims at establishing a Joint EU Intelligence School to provide education and training in intelligence disciplines and other specific fields to EU Member States’ intelligence personnel” [sic] – Reply to EPQ E-005901/2018 (information is extremely limited)

Exposure: The UK has not currently opted into this process. If it takes off, there is a long term risk of doing so in due course.

Action: Ensure that UK training occurs preferentially through NATO and bilateral formats.
