Open to Question; Journalism and Freedom of Information

The following paper is available from the Reuters foundation:

Mr Martin Rosenbaum (UK, BBc): Open to Question; Journalism and Freedom of Information

Paper: This is a study of how journalists in two countries make use of freedom of information legislation, ahead of it coming into force in the UK in January 2005. The two countries studied are: first Ireland, which introduced FOI a few years ago and has since seen a backlash from hostile forces of officialdom which led to the Act being heavily amended and narrowed down; and secondly Sweden, which has the strongest tradition of state openness anywhere in the world.
