Abstract
Since the installation of a standing review committee to oversee Belgium’s two intelligence services, one of the most important aspects of intelligence work the committee was to watch over has been the coordination of and cooperation between the services. This article offers an historical perspective of cooperation in the field of security and intelligence, with a focus on the modalities by which coordination and cooperation have been governed under the review committee’s oversight. It assesses the general performance of the services in working with each other and other partners in various fields of national security. Drawing conclusions from these 20 years of trial and error interaction, some reflections are made upon the terrorist attacks in France and Belgium of 2015 and 2016, to conclude with considerations about national security policy.
