Published: 2008

Professor Svitlana Kravchenko’s memo on access to information laws, especially dealing with access to environmental information, is an overview of the right of access to information, the scope of that right and restrictions of that right. It also deals with procedures for enforcing the right of access to information and remedies available when the right is denied. She reviews laws from several countries and draws on her experience as the Vice Chair of the UN ECE Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee.

The memorandum is a pointer to the state of the art in access to environmental information laws
