Welcome to the Center for Intelligence and Security Studies

The Center for Intelligence and Security Studies (CISS) has two branches in Germany: Munich and Berlin. The Munich center was founded in September 2017 at the Universität der Bundeswehr München. Its objectives are to promote interdisciplinary research activities, to organize and coordinate the master's program in Intelligence and Security Studies (MISS), and to advise political leaders in the field of security studies. In addition, CISS is making an active contribution to the global linkage of key players in the field and is providing a common platform for all stakeholders.

CISS benefits from the extraordinary resources of a world-class research institution and ensures extensive support for its researchers, students, and fellow partners.

In both its research and teaching, CISS pursues fundamental knowledge as well as multidisciplinary collaborations that make technology more effective in solving complex societal problems.
