Government Transparency and Secrecy: An Examination of Meaning and Its Use in the Executive Branch
Wendy Ginsberg (au)
From the beginnings of the American federal government, Congress has required executive branch agencies to release or otherwise make available government information and records. Some scholars and statesmen, including James Madison, thought access to information -- commonly referred to in contemporary vernacular as ńˇýtransparencyńˇŁ -- was an essential cornerstone of democratic governance. Today, the federal government attempts to balance access to information with the need to protect certain information (including national security information and trade secrets) in order to achieve transparency. As a consequence, access and protection are often in tension with one another. Contents of this report: Introduction; What Is Transparency?; Transparency and Secrecy; Congressional and Other Powers and Authorities Related to Transparency; The Evolution of Transparency in the Federal Government and Its Potential Effects on Access and Participation. This is a print on demand report.
