LENGTH: 3 days

This course provides an introductory review of PRC intelligence and counterintelligence practices.

It focuses on the significant differences as well as the similarities between Chinese intelligence collection and counterintelligence practices and Western and European models.

The course looks at Chinese cultural considerations and PRC historical events which are essential to understanding collection practices and counterintelligence operations employed by the Chinese.

In addition to coverage of traditional espionage, the seminar also discusses the Chinese economic espionage threat.
