Abstract
This document summarizes two days of discussion between a number of cognitive and behavioural scientists and professional intelligence analysts from 12 countries and a multilateral organization, which was co-hosted in Ottawa by DRDC, Canada’s Privy Council Office, and the US Department of State, February 23-24, 2009. This experimental roundtable explored the question of whether and how behavioural and cognitive sciences can contribute to improved intelligence analysis. It concluded that there are many relevant crossovers between these fields, and the time and cost of further collaboration and “bridging” between the scientist-intelligence practitioner perspectives would be fully justified in terms of strengthened intelligence performance and worthwhile scientific discovery.
