Program posted by: The Democratic Lab
Posted on: January 19, 2013
The Democratic Lab' initiated in 2011 the Secret Police Project.
At first, the project was related to the democratic transition in Tunisia and especially the necessary legal framework for intelligence services in a democratic Tunisia (organisational chart, procedures to set up files, access to some informations/files, control of the services...).
However, Tunisian revolution is a laboratory. The debates and analysis concerning Tunisia are also interesting for other countries, even old democratic countries, because the relationship between democracy and secret services is universal.
We created a blog, in which we put international ressources and material on the subject: conferences, study trips, reports, articles, videos, art exhibitions...
The blog is currently in French and Arabic. The Arabic site has to be updated and we would like to translate the site in English and Spanish.
We would like to enrich the blog with ressources and material related to secret police legal issue in other countries.
- Conference-debate co-organized by the Democratic Lab': « Secret police archives: a challenge for the democratic transition ? »
- Help us to translate the blog in other languages
- Send us articles, reports, videos and other material related to the issue
- Propose activities in order to enrich the debate
