This chapter explores the evolution of the Committee on Intelligence and Security Services in Africa (CISSA) as a mechanism for information sharing and confidence building at continental level. Intelligence cooperation in Africa was inspired by continental aspirations towards collective security and the institutionalization of common defense and security systems. Michael Herman observes that multilateral intelligence clubs are usually single-discipline in nature, limited to particular categories of information. As the continent moves increasingly towards integrated responses to peace and security, CISSA has been created as a mechanism to enable the formalization of intelligence cooperation. The primary aim of this structure is to assist the African Union (AU) and all its institutions to effectively address the security challenges confronting the continent through providing information and analysis on threats as well as providing advice on possible courses of action. The chapter presents some considerations on the potential impact of CISSA on regional security in Africa and will conclude with some broad recommendations.
