Form versus Content in Enforced Transparency

Form versus Content in Enforced Transparency Matt Goerzen and Raymond Johansen Transparency is seen as vital to any functioning democracy; in the United States, citizens enjoy limited powers to bring government documents into the public domain via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and some legal protection is granted to public interest-motivated leakers and whistleblowers. Generally, transparency is understood as a net positive for liberal democracy, and organizations like the Pirate Parties International centralize transparency… [read more »]

Election Renewal

Election Renewal Guest edited by Katerina Llanes and Meredith Whittaker Shawn Maximo, Election Renewal (Purple Power), 2016.

And was coined during a time in a… [read more »]
