International Right to Know Day

The decision to celebrate and promote September 28 as the International Right to Know Day was taken on the last day of a Freedom of Information litigation conference held in 2002. The day acknowledges that the right of access to information is an important human right, is essential for transparent and accountable government, and makes possible the public involvement in formulating social policies and in the decision-making processes of governance.
