Hi all,

this email to share the today release of the "The Global Principles on 
National Security and Freedom of Information (the Tshwane Principles)" 
by the Open Society Foundation.

That's a set of Policy Guidelines for the protection of National 
Security Whistleblower.

Those Principles address the topic of Whistleblowing and National 
Security and has been done in cooperation with 22 organizations:

As a summary i suggest reading "Understanding the Tshwane Principles":

It is very interesting to note that Snowden, the Whistleblower of NSA 
PRISM saga, would had been protected under Principles 43 and 46 (and 
maybe under Principle 40).

A blog post with an analysis on the case related to that principles is 
being prepared.

For media and analysts interested on it, they may contact 
sandra.coliver at and
