Listserv of the June 2005 APA PENS Task Force

In August 2006 Jean Maria Arrigo, a member of the APA Presidential Task Force on Psychological Ethics and National Security (PENS), deposited the Unofficial Records of the Task Force, including the PENS listserv and drafts of the PENS Report, in the Hoover Institution Archives at Stanford University (the full table of contents is available HERE).

PENS task force proceedings were confidential by agreement, but Arrigo came to believe that severe conflicts of interest on the part of task force members and unrevealed participants in the PENS meeting invalidated the confidentiality agreement.

An electronic file of the PENS listserv became publicly available on May 8, 2009, through ProPublica, Journalism in the Public Interest, as “E-mails from the American Psychological Association’s Task Force on Ethics and National Security: April 22, 2005 — June 26, 2006".
