Open Society Justice Initiative Spotlights Freedom of Information

12 August 2003

The Open Society Justice Initiative has dedicated the first issue of its new online newsletter to freedom of information (FOI).

"Justice Initiatives" chronicles the international freedom-of-information movement, Nigeria's push for an FOI law, and the experiences of new FOI legislation in Bulgaria and Mexico. The issue also contains reports from a recent conference on FOI laws in southeast Europe held by ARTICLE 19, Open Society and the Croatian Helsinki Committee.

The Open Society Justice Initiative, a program of the Open Society Institute, promotes rights-based law reform, builds knowledge and strengthens legal capacity worldwide. Thematic areas include freedom of information and expression, anti-corruption, national criminal justice reform, international justice, equality and citizenship.
