ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Scholars and critics have shown how a 'culture of security' ushered in after 11 September 2001 has involved exceptional legal measures and increased recourse to secrecy on the basis of protecting public safety and national security. However, secrecy is not confined to this development, and includes legacies of secrecy across a range of institutional and cultural settings. With this in mind, this two day workshop will interrogate the legal as well as socio-legal dimensions of secrecy.

In law, secrecy impacts upon the separation of powers, due process and the rule of law, raising fundamental concerns about open justice, procedural fairness and human rights. More broadly, questions concerning secrecy involve the credibility of public and private institutions.
