Right to Information Conferences

Though there have been great advances over the past decade in the access to information (ATI) field, there remain a number of challenges including countries without laws, patchy implementation, and some continued resistance. Numerous countries with once vibrant and robust access to information legislation are now in retreat, while the passage of new laws has slowed, and implementation efforts are often insufficient. Moreover, it remains unclear that the myriad benefits of the right to information are in fact reaching the most disadvantaged people and promoting the anticipated societal transformations.

The following regional and international conferences recognize the need to reflect on the successes and obstacles and consider the emerging issues.
