From 1991-2021 the FAS Project on Government Secrecy worked to reduce the scope of government secrecy and to promote public access to government information by seeking reform of national security classification and declassification policies. 

The Project published previously undisclosed or hard-to-find government documents of public policy interest as well as related reporting and analysis in the Secrecy News Blog
