Special Section: NATO and counterintelligence
In public parlance NATO intelligence for a long time seemed to be an oxymoron. However, NATO has been involved in (counter)intelligence much longer than often thought. In this special section in Atlantisch Perspectief you will find the gist of several presentations delivered at a symposium organized by Utrecht University and the Netherlands Atlantic Association. With contributions from Bob de Graaff (Utrecht University), James Mader (U.S. Army), Daniel Pronk (Dutch Ministry of Defense), and Joseph S. Gordon (U.S. National Intelligence University).

This article is a transcript of the key note speech delivered by Michael Rühle (NATO HQ) at the special symposium organized by the Netherlands Atlantic Association to celebrate its 65th anniversary.
