The Threat Response Spy Files: A Case Study about an Arms Manufacturer, a Private Intelligence Company and Many Infiltrators

ABSTRACT

British Aerospace paid a private intelligence company to spy on CAAT, the Campaign Against Arms Trade. Daily reports on activists’ whereabouts were sent to Britain’s largest arms dealer by Evelyn le Chêne, a woman with a well-known record in intelligence work. Analysing the original spy documents, this paper will address two sets of questions. One involves the implications for grassroots work, the other raises the issue of appropriate research methodologies.
