Emerging Democracies and Freedom of Information

Emerging Democracies and Freedom of Information

Looking at three broad geographical areas - the Far East, the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, and Africa - this collection of papers debates the issues concerning the necessity of equal access to information and technology for a stable society. The contributors analyze the work done by organizations such as International PEN and Article 19 in this field. These papers from the conference on Emerging Democracies and Freedom of Information in September 1994, aim to broaden the debate around freedom of information, what it means and how it is used in emerging democracies. Contributors to the text include Gboyega Banjo, Russell Bowden, Anne Chisholm, Runnalls Davis, Tamara Dragadze and Catherine Drucker.
