FOI lunch 1: Catching up on trade secrets

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!


In 2018, the Trade Secrets Directive came into force all over Europe. In some countries, this limited the access to information and the opportunities to write about business; in other countries journalists and their organisations managed to include provisions in the national laws to protect journalism. Meet Stéphane Horel, who via strategic document requests challenged the French implementation, Freja Wedenborg from Denmark, who was involved in the negotiation of provisions protecting journalism in her country and Edouard Perrin, who anticipated the problems the EU directive was gong to create and assembled journalists in the field to address them. But how is the situation in other countries? Bring your experiences with access to documents concerning business matters in your country.
