Médias, responsabilité gouvernementale et secret d’Etat: l’affaire WikiLeaks

Le Temps des médias n°16, Printemps 2011, p. 161-172.

Since the 1970’s, leaks of state secrets have played an essential role in holding the American government to account for its use of secrecy. This article uses the Wikileaks affair to shed light on the need for and the the limits of... leaks, when they are used to promote transparency in the name of democracy. The specific nature of state secrets and their ambiguous relation to democracy condition the democratic value of leaks. It is only on the basis of such an appraisal that the apparent tensions between the defence of democracy and the preservation of national security be reconciled. DrapeauFrancais
