La collection des éditions VUIBERT

Drawing on its expertise in the domain of security/safety and economic intelligence, the Economic Security Department manages a specialist collection published by Vuibert.

Written by experts and practitioners, these works offer private sector executives, senior civil servants (civil and military), journalists and universities an original approach to matters of national security and company safety.

These publications offer both new lines of thought and practical suggestions on current themes linked to economic intelligence and risk and crisis management in organisations.

This is an essential collection to improve understanding of strategic issues that public and private organisations now face and, on a broader scale, France and Europe.

The department's most recent publications attest to the responsiveness of its approach to new security/safety issues.

From spying to intelligence. France in the digital area

Franck Bulinge enshrines his theory in an inter-disciplinary approach which alone allows us to understand the foundations of the intelligence process and bring new perspectives. He also reveals the epistemological basis.

 

Economic intelligence. A French history. Causation, those involved, policies

Hélène Masson sets out and provides an in-depth analysis of the origins of this way of managing organisations which first and foremost constitutes a public policy, but throughout she also poses questions as to its exact nature.

 

Towards industrial sovereignty ? Strategic sectors and globalisation

In short, it's important to have greater faith in the conviction that we need to legitimise again in people's minds: the idea of industrial sovereignty. This doesn't mean isolating ourselves from the rest of the world, but encouraging reciprocity in economic behaviour.

 

Terrorism: democracy in danger? From 9/11 to the death of Bin Laden

In spite of the military means and tools used, there have never been so many or such fatal attacks. No, terrorism is not war. The "war on terror" can never be more than a metaphor in a fight where the simple fact of identifying the enemy is a problem.

 

Influence or secret wars. From propaganda to manipulation 

Secret wars exist. Look for them on the battlefield of influence, of strategies to configure and consequently control - in the most discreet way possible - the mental space, be it joint or individual, and the regulatory network. Influence, to borrow Walter Lippmann's expression is "the manufacture of consent".

 

Financial capitalism and economic security. From ideology to pragmatism

It's a question of understanding how much companies, whether they are strategic or not, listed or not, can benefit from the globalisation of finance (i.e. opening up to foreign capital) without putting their survival at risk.

 

The new war entrepreneurs. From mercenaries to private military companies

Unwilling to condemn all universally, Phillipe Chapleau analyses the emergence of PMCs through the lens of the requirements facing governments, whilst outlining ways of developing these companies which fit in with army efficiency and respect the requirements of democracy.

 

Leadership in the unknown or a Renaissance for organisations

The crisis, in the traditional sense of the word, is dead! Today organisations are facing exceptional circumstances, that is, situations which do not fit in with the normal rules with have structured the lives of companies for decades. The 21st Century needs a new leadership model. It's a question of inventing leadership in the unknown, the very thing which relies on what the authors of this work call the DIONISOS matrix.

 

Business in a hostile environment. Company safety around the world.

This work is based on the observation that there are multiple stakeholders involved in the safety of business and goes on to propose enduring solutions to economic, public and those from the humanitarian field setting up activities in zones where the state is not capable of guaranteeing the safety of individuals and organisations. A benchmark work, it aims to take stock of fundamental knowledge of the profession of international safety consultant (ESI).

 

The State, Fear and the People. From the feeling of insecurity to the commoditisation of risks.

 

Private security workers in our country will exceed the joint number of national police and gendarmerie by 2014.

What role will be left to the State in this field? What will the consequences be for citizens who have become security consumers? Beyond the strictly safety factors, this work is an analysis of the future of our national community.

        

 

Intellectual property rights in a globalised world.

The European Centre for Law and Economy (CEDE) at ESSEC and the Institute for Study and Research for Business Security (IERSE) decided to open the debate on the issue of intellectual property and provide an analytical and operational perspective to companies faced with these problems on a daily basis.

 

The metamorphosis of power. Civilisation's chance

From competition between new powers and new expressions of hegemony based on influence (American and Chinese), to the less visible consequences, Europe and France must now build this illusive strategic State, which will prove essential for the future of liberal and democratic societies

 

 

 

Cyberwar. The digital war has begun

From competition between new powers and new expressions of hegemony based on influence (American and Chinese), to the less visible consequences, Europe and France must now build this illusive strategic State, which will prove essential for the future of liberal and democratic societies.

This work provides the key to understanding the strategic issues of the phenomena that is the internet which is a part of our everyday lives. The ability to participate in this cyberwar is one of the main components of a security and strength strategy for the national community today.

 

Terrorism is not war

In spite of the military means and tools used, there have never been so many or such fatal attacks. The "war on terror" can never be more than a metaphor in a fight where the simple fact of identifying the enemy is a problem.

 

 

France at economic war. Pleas for a strategic state

To win this new type of war, the State must become strategic and partner companies. To do this it needs adequate tools and methods.

Authored by sector specialists, this work sets out practical suggestions and proposes new lines of thought on economic intelligence, one of the most important vectors for the success of companies.
