Video Posted: Moving the Global Access to Information Agenda Forward
Nov 5, 2012

From October 22nd-25th, The Access Initiative hosted an international group of Thai and Indonesian civil society representatives, high level government officials, and legal aid groups as part of our Strengthening the Right to Information for People and the Environment (STRIPE) project. This Study Tour provided our participants with an opportunity to meet US governmental officials, World Bank representatives, and NGO leaders to gain knowledge about our country’s pollution control regulations, data release procedures, and the challenges of using FOI requests to further pollution prevention campaigns.

On October 25th, TAI and our international guests presented a concluding seminar that reflected on lessons from the STRIPE Study Tour and how this work will fit into the broader context of the open government, environmental justice, and global access to information movements.

A video of the seminar is now online in two parts:
