Official Secrets and Oversight in the EU

Law and Practices of Classified Information

Vigjilenca Abazi

Oxford Studies in European Law

  • Detailed account of the development of rules on official secrets facilitates understanding of the regulatory framework of official secrets
  • Empirical data from original interview material with key stakeholders provides useful original insights on the practice for practitioners and academics
  • In-depth analysis of parliamentary, judicial and administrative oversight aids understanding and identifying oversight deficits and oversight 'overloads'
  • Comprehensive evaluation of access to official secrets (by citizens, oversight institutions and 'insiders') offers critical knowledge about the pressure points that must be addressed, useful for possible revision of rules by policymakers
  • Supports researchers in further identifying discrepancies between law in the books and law in action by mapping living practices that shape administrative discretion 'outside' primary law
