"[T]he Security Service controversies" of the late 60s and 70s "marked the real beginning of a spate of publications in the field.... Much of the intelligence writing in Canada has been performed by academics.... Increasingly, official government publications have become a useful source of information about intelligence matters in Canada.... The heavy concentration is on CSIS and the matter of oversight."

Weller, Geoffrey R. "Comparing Western Inspectors General of Intelligence and Security." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 9, no. 4 (Winter 1996-1997): 383-406.

Statutory Inspectors General and or similar have been created in the Western democracies over the past 15 years as part of an "overall increase in the degree of oversight accorded intelligence agencies.... The Inspectors General have generally built up good reputations for their largely well done ... work." But "the IGs have not always been able to anticipate problems and give early warning."

Weller, Geoffrey R. "Oversight of Australia's Intelligence Services." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 12, no. 4 (Winter 1999): 484-503.

Intelligence "agencies should not be so hamstrung that they cannot properly do what they are mandated to do. Yet, their political masters and the general public need sufficient assurances that these agencies will not become inefficient or threats to the political system itself. Australia has made attempts, especially in recent years, to achieve this balance.... But the success of these attempts to find necessary balance in Australia is open to some question."
