Yearbook 2021: High-quality intelligence is essential for foreign and security policymaking

In an escalating security situation where the role of diplomatic exchange is narrowing, the need for information grows. The confrontation between the West and Russia highlights the importance of intelligence that supports Finnish policymakers in their work, and Supo seeks to provide information to serve as an essential element in Finland’s foreign and security policymaking. Simultaneously, Supo’s traditional role to counter covert intelligence gathering by foreign powers is emphasised.
