LARIA News was first published in 1979 as Research and Intelligence News with the support of INLOGOV and the last edition was published in 2012. Over the next few months we will be putting all previous editions of LARIA News online. We will then be consulting with members over relaunching LARIA News. All the content we would traditionally have placed in LARIA News is on this website. We also publicise through our LARIA eNews email which goes to all members (register here to receive it).
