PIDB on Discretionary Declassification, Other Topics

In its ongoing consideration of policy options for “transforming classification,” the Public Interest Declassification Board has produced three short new papers that are intended to prompt further discussion.

The new papers discuss Simplifying the Declassification Review Process for Historical Records, Discretionary Declassification and Release of Contemporary National Security Information, and Regularizing the Declassification Review of Classified Congressional Records.

Interested members of the public are invited to comment on the PIDB blog here.
