Access to Information in the Arab World: A Battle for Open SocietiesDownload Publication
The right to access information remains an ongoing struggle on the way to building open and democratic societies in the Middle East and North Africa, says the Arab Reform Initiative (ARI) in a new report published today, pointing to the crucial role civil society has still to play.
 
The report builds on a previous study on Egypt carried out jointly by ARI and its member organisation, the Egyptian Centre for Public Opinion Research (Baseera), and assesses the state of the debate on access to information in Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and Tunisia.
