Working closely with DIA"s Office of International Engagement and the Combatant Commands, the Center for International Engagement co-hosts conferences and symposia on behalf of the Director, Defense Intelligence Agency. These events bring together Military Intelligence Chiefs to discuss regional security issues in an academic environment of non-attribution land transparency.
The Black Sea and Caspian Sea Symposium series began in March 2006, prompted by the suggestion of GEN (Ret) Sergio Medar, National Defense and Security Advisor to the President of Romania, to gather senior intelligence leaders from the Black Sea and Caspian Sea nations to discuss security issues of mutual interest and concern. The personal connections and benefits that resulted from the regional conference transformed the event into an annual occurrence that has continued to benefit from the strong support of participating countries, NIU, and DIA.
