What is the best way to get started in learning about CI in Eastern Europe and how it might different from other regions around the globe?  What resources should I be looking at?  What training is available?

I just joined this group and wanted to say hello . I have done in the last several years many CI projects involving Russia. I for the most part track ownership of corporations and arms deals with the States. Just wanted to touch base with ya'lls group.

Dear Mislav,
please, let's reunite Germany in your map. It looks somewhat odd to me! But your initiate is very much appreciated!!!

Hi Tad,
I understand your concern, I'm not trying to revive Eastern block or anything like that:). We can change the photo or refocus on smaller number of countries.
I'm aware things are very different between countries shown on the picture.
But again, we all have issues in demonstrating what CI is, in defining it, in getting people involved in it into forming local communities including both corporate practitioners, academics and ex-intelligence community involved, in negative PR as to be associated with espionage as well as in historical influence of different intelligence agencies on perception of intelligence, in lots of secrecy around it, in trying to find good cases of local implementation of CI in companies, in mixing it with market research, etc. Also lots of multinationals working in the region cover whole or big part of this region with a headquarter in one of the countries.
That was were I was coming from. Few yrs ago I did some "research" on the topic of CI in Eastern Europe, at that time the purpose was to give a "picture" of CI and its potential to SCIP.
While there are probably lots of open issues and I might have missed some here is presentation I did at that time with great help of some of the colleagues I met at SCIP conferences from some of the countries mentioned (they are all mentioned in the presentation).

By the way it was presented at so many time these days mentioned SLA conference (2007 Denver).
Cheers and thnks for the comment
p.s. we shoould have made a discussion topic of this :)
