Leak, Wikileaks, whistleblower - New challenges for human rights?

The panel discussion aims to highlight the conflicting relationship between the public's right to know and the right to privacy of the people mentioned in the published logs by WikiLeaks.


For example: In 2010, Amnesty International and three other prominent rights groups called on the whistleblower website to expunge the names of Afghans mentioned in the war logs because of fears that they could be targeted by insurgents. Are situations like these new challenges that require us to recalibrate the relationship between the conflicting rights and/or the responsibility of the media? Is the new platform and provider OpenLeaks - “We want to make leaking safer” - a real alternative for the protection of the whistleblowers, their sources and the people mentioned?
