This symposium seeks to examine the present state of play with respect to transparency and freedom of information. It will incorporate short sets of remarks and “interventions” throughout the program offering perspectives on the current landscape. And, there will be two panel discussions. The first will offer a "view from the inside,” considering how government actors operate in an atmosphere of increased transparency and citizen engagement. The second will offer a "view from the outside,” as those interested in promoting transparency and accountability consider the ways in which the Internet has impacted their work.
This event is presented by Harvard Law School and by the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, with generous support from HLS alumnus Mitch Julis.
