Dr. Cristiana Matei has been appointed to the Editorial Team of the International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence, a prestigious peer-reviewed journal that provides a platform for both academics and professionals to share research on intelligence-related challenges. Dr. Matei will serve alongside Editor-in-Chief Dr. Jan Goldman (Southern New Hampshire University) and Dr. Matthew Crosston (American Military University).

Dr. Matei developed a close relationship with the International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence throughout her career in academia. Over the last ten years, the internationally-recognized journal published several of Dr. Matei’s original articles, a list of which appears below. Much of her selected research concentrates on the reform of intelligence institutions during and after democratic transitions as well as issues that span across all kinds of intelligence organizations, including developing coherent policy and navigating relationships with the media. In addition to providing content, Dr. Matei has served as a member of the publication’s Editorial Advisory Board since 2013. She has also added to the journal’s prominence by building its talent pool—Dr. Matei has invited scholars and intelligence practitioners from all over the world to contribute their research.

As Program Manager of CCMR’s Intelligence & Democracy program and Latin America Regional program, Dr. Matei has given much to CCMR, NPS, and her field over the last decade. In addition to running two CCMR programs and conducting research, she teaches in the National Security Affairs (NSA) department as well as the Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS). Dr. Matei is also overseeing more than twenty student Master’s theses this year alone.

In a separate statement, she expressed her gratitude to Dr. Richard Valcourt, the current editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Intelligence & Counterintelligence, as well as her colleagues and mentors at CCMR, at NPS, and beyond for their invaluable support.

Dr. Matei will officially begin her editorial position in 2020. Please join CCMR and the NPS community in congratulating her on this achievement.
