Parade der Heimlichtuer: Schwedische Geheimdienste und die Wissenschaft
Contrary to the careful refined image regarding the freedom of information and transparency, Sweden has practised extensive secrecy on important political fields. This does not only refer to problems relating to the politics of neutrality, but also concerning the surveillance of parts of the Swedish left by the intelligence services. In spite of numerous exposures and scandals which were made public through journalists and historical research, a serious revelation and examination of the system and methods of this observations has been long awaited. A wide debate in science and in the public is strongly needed – the public should not be left in the dark with the help of limited information of involved authorities and politicians, or restrictions to relevant material.
