Our Team


 

ESISC’s team is multinational (with at least ten different nationalities represented), and is composed of highly skilled professionals in the areas of national intelligence and the army as well as university specialists in international affairs (lawyers, sociologists, historians, economists, journalists, and psychologists). Other than English and French, we work in more than 20 languages (Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian, Azerbijiani, Turkish, Serb-Croation, Hungarian, Spanish and Italian).
