About the Journal of European and American Intelligence Studies
In July of 2021, the Department of Intelligence and Security Studies at Coastal Carolina University signed a memorandum of agreement with the Research Institute for European and American Studies (RIEAS), in Athens, Greece. The agreement gives the Department of Intelligence and Security Studies editorial responsibility over the Journal of European and American Intelligence Studies (JEAIS), with the participation of the department’s faculty and a select number of students.
Published twice a year, JEAIS is an international academic-led scholarly publication that focuses on the field of intelligence and related areas of study and practice, such as terrorism and counterterrorism, domestic and international security, geopolitics, and international relations. The journal’s rationale is driven by the global nature of security challenges, where we are called more than ever to communicate and work collaboratively to solve our common problems. Thus, the JEAIS aspires to promote an international dialogue between diverse perspectives and experiences, based on original research on the broader European and American practice and study of intelligence.
The Department of Intelligence and Security Studies at CCU, in association with RIEAS, is dedicated to ensuring the accuracy and quality of the content published in each issue of the journal. However, authors take full public responsibility for the content of their contributions. Any opinions and views expressed in the JEAIS are those of the authors, and are not the views of, or endorsed by, RIEAS or the Department of Intelligence and Security Studies at CCU.
Founding/Honorary Editor - John Nomikos (RIEAS)
Managing editors - Joseph Fitsanakis (United States) and Christian Kaunert (United Kingdom)

By crafting each journal issue through a rigorous and selective screening and review process of potential contributors, the JEAIS adheres to its mission, which is three-fold: (a) to provide an equal opportunity for academics and practitioners of intelligence to discuss and challenge established and emerging ideas; (b) to address existent knowledge gaps by advancing new knowledge; and (c) to shape the evolution of intelligence scholarship beyond traditional communities of research.
