Upcoming Event
Sunday, October 13, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Less celebrated but no less important than civil disobedience, whistleblowing has played an essential role in the health of American democracy since the beginning. In her illuminating history of this vital tool, Stanger, Russell Leng ’60 Professor of International Politics and Economics at Middlebury College, New America Cybersecurity fellow, and author of One Nation Under Contract, documents key cases from throughout the nation’s history, outlines the complicated ethical questions involved in reporting the transgressions of the powerful, considers how technology and increasing militarization are affecting the exposure of misconduct, and shows why whistleblowing is more crucial than ever.
