One Think Tank, Four Views on WikiLeaks

A recent discussion among IPS research fellows, however, indicated that there are many competing views. So we decided to open the discussion to the public.

You’re invited to a roundtable discussion with IPS fellows Phyllis Bennis, Sanho Tree, Daphne Wysham, as well as Emira Woods, co-director of the Institute’s Foreign Policy In Focus project, where they will provide assessments regarding the pros and cons of the release of documents on WikiLeaks. What negative and/or positive outcomes could result from the WikiLeaks disclosures? What actually can and can’t be assessed from the information disclosed so far? What are the context, motivations, and/or omissions that are not being talked about? How should and will the U.S. government respond? This interdisciplinary look at WikiLeaks’ State Department disclosure will include a Middle East expert, an Africa expert, a diplomatic historian, and a climate change expert.

You can also participate in the event via a live web stream here!

Streaming will start 10 minutes before the event begins and our online audience will be able to ask questions.
