Abstract

Is collective security possible when evaluating and responding to threats depend on access to intelligence that, by its nature, cannot be shared openly? Debates over whether the United States should share intelligence with and through the United Nations have arisen in every administration and been won each time by those who showed that it was in the U.S. interest to do so. The question is no longer whether intelligence should be shared, but rather how and to what effect.

Keywords: United Nations, intelligence, Secretary-General
