The intelligence, Strategy foresight and Influence departement conducts research on the strategic function of "knowledge and anticpation" highlighted by the French White Paper on Defense since 2008. The first ambition of this program is to contribute to a more detailed understanding of intelligence in its broadest sense (i.e., as information, process, activity and organization); the second is to contribute to the consolidation of analytical approaches, particularly in the field of anticipation; the third is to work on the different dimensions of so-called "hybrid" warfare, in particular influence and manipulationof information. The field contributes to the reinforcement of the hybrid character of IRSEM by circulating papers and reports that are at the intersection of academic research and open source intelligence analysis.
