Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


Did agents pass on their own spying activities to the children? Were agents supposed to have offspring for the purpose of intelligence work, to this way be supplied with well-trained intelligence sources? Can we identify factors with the children of agents suggesting that there were attempts to hire them? The here presented article pursues these questions by five steps and comes to the conclusion: children of agents who later became agents themselves are an exception. In most cases agent-parents did not want to expose their children to the thus connected risks. In case of those agents who passed on their spying activities to family members there were mostly certain factors working in favour of such behaviour.
