Although the use of 'critical intelligence studies' is a relatively new one, writing critically about intelligence and security practices is hardly recent. To understand the evolution and adoption of 'critical intelligence studies' this chapter considers three main areas: Firstly, some of the recent interventions in critical intelligence studies; Secondly, key contributions of critical security studies that are particularly relevant to the discussion of critical intelligence studies; Thirdly, a methodological proposal for critical work on intelligence, security and surveillance to attend to scandals, controversies and disputes about intelligence agencies, surveillance practices, and justifications of security.
