Since 2001, Australia has introduced more than 70 national security laws, more than any other country on earth, many of which intrude on press freedom. Without the restraint of an equivalent of the US First Amendment, national security considerations have trumped press freedom in ways that appear to reduce transparency and accountability in Australian governments. This project seeks to assess the impact of the legislation on the practice of public interest journalism in Australia.
