Corderoy vs State Secrets: Freedom of Information Act as a Tool and a Career
In this session, openDemocracy‘s Jenna Corderoy will lift the lid on how she has used the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to obtain vital documents for her investigations. She will talk about how and why the FOIA is such a vital tool in holding the powerful to account, and discuss her favourite investigations and stories obtained via the Act. She will also talk about how she fell into this specialism and what journalists can do to protect the legislation.
