Agent Provocateur describes a person assigned to collect information as moles and provoke unrest, violence, debate, or argument within a group while acting as a member of the group but covertly serving the interests of another rival group or hostile organization. In general, agents provocateurs seek to disrupt a group's activities secretly from within. Any additional transaction costs that can impose on a group are usually counted as success.
