3CR interviewed Professor Delmas about Civil Disobedience

Dr. Candice Delmas, Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Political Science, at Northeastern University, was recently interviewed by the Australian independent radio station 3CR. She discussed the role of civil disobedience and ethics in the process of government whistleblowing with Prof. Goswich from Melbourne University. When asked if the concept of civil disobedience should be broadened, Delmas noted that “The problem is not the concept, in fact the problem is how we perceive those things that felt outside in particular.” Dr. Delmas discussed the boundaries around state secrets and how those boundaries should be redefined especially in light of the publishing of secret documents by the press. She cited the cases of Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. Dr. Delmas previewed her future research plans about legislative and judicial implications after civil disobedience. For the entire interview, please see the 3CR website.
