New Guide to Good Governance on «Openness and Confidentiality» in the Defence Sector

Today CIDS publicize it’s new booklet «Balancing Openness and Confidentiality in the Defence Sector: Lessons from International Good Practice». This publication is part of CIDS Guides to Good Governance series, or a GGG. The GGG contribute to fulfill CIDS’ aim of promoting integrity, anti-corruption measures, and good governance within the defence sector.

The sixth GGG was launced at the CIDS organized seminar, «Transparency in the Norwegian Defence Sector», that took place in Oslo in May this year. A seminar that was made possible by a collaboration with the Norwegian Institute for Defence Studies, IFS.

The GGG is concerned with the concept of confidentiality. How it is used as well as misused sometimes by Governments. How do the concept of «confidentiality» balance  national security concerns? How do Governments contain or release sensitive information about it’s activities?
