Let’s talk about Whistleblowing!
Listen to the session:
During the past decades, whistleblowing and the publication of state secrets have proven powerful strategies to provide citizens with a new baseline of what they can know about clandestine governmental politics. At the same time, harsh reactions against the involved actors have demonstrated the political delicacy of such publications, and a general insecurity about how to deal with this new type of information politics. Driven by questions from the audience to the speakers, this session aims to create a space for debate about ways in which whistleblowing and the publication of secret material can become a legitimate and well-respected part of democracy.
