L’espionnage fascine, le renseignement inquiète.

L’espionnage « classique » a joué un rôle majeur dans les conflits entre États jusqu’à la fin de la guerre froide. 
Aujourd’hui, les enjeux, les méthodes, les moyens, à l’âge d’Internet, ont profondément changé. Le renseignement est désormais à la portée d’acteurs multiples, collectifs ou individuels, et pas simplement des grandes puissances de naguère.

En la matière, quelle est la stratégie française ? Qu’est-ce qui est secret et qu’est-ce qui ne peut plus l’être ? Comment concilier objectifs politiques et respect des droits ?

L’état du dossier par l’un de nos meilleurs spécialistes.
