Publisher Description

This book will be the first comprehensive book in the market on a subject which is of increasing global interest.


The right to information (or freedom of information) has now emerged as a key component in credible democratic governance and is vital for promoting ‘open governance’ and the accountability of public decision makers, as well as for strengthening transparency, participation and the rule of law. The right to information is not only fundamental for an open and democratic society, but is a key weapon in the fight against poverty and corruption leading to accelerating human development.


More than 80 countries already have an FOI/RTI law and others are proceeding towards it. There are country-specific manuals and studies, there are many websites devoted to FOI issues, but there is not a single book which looks at the subject from a global perspective. The book is an attempt to fill this void.
