A successful Webinar was held with 25 organisations in Brazil about the LAC P10 Regional process on access to information, public participation and access to justice. Participants discussed the status of access rights in Brazil and their thoughts on the Brazilian Government and CSOs role in participation and contribution to this process. For more information on this process in Brazil please contact Article 19 in Brazil or the TAI Secretariat.
The Access Initiative would like to announce its new membership rules which take effect on May 1, 2014. These rules were drafted by the Core Team, commented on by the network and, after incorporation of comments, approved by the Core Team.
