State Open Government Law and Practice in a Post-9/11 World is your guide to changes in U.S. state public information laws in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and changes in national public information laws in countries with elevated terrorist threats and activity.
Part One, prepared by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, gives you access to six important topics in state government law: Critical Infrastructure, Cyber Security, First Response, Political Structure, Public Health, and Terror Investigation. Each section is alphabetized by state and provides you with information on legal limits on public access to government information as related to the War on Terror.
Part Two, compiled by the Center for Terrorism Law, informs you of national public information laws in countries at high risk for terrorist threats: Colombia, France, Israel, and the United Kingdom. This section explores how other countries handle the issue of public access to information and allows for comparison and contrast with U.S. policies.
