Public Consultation on access to information and open government data

Access Info Europe and the Open Knowledge Foundation, in collaboration with the Open Society Institute Information Program, held a public consultation on open government data and the right of access to information.

This consultation was based on the new report "Beyond Access: Open Government Data and the 'Right to Reuse'" produced as a result of research into the open government data and access to information movements. It identifies the practical, technical and legal challenges facing these movements. The report is based on discussions with activists about the main issues to be address in the next couple of years, questions such as whether a right of access is linked to a "right to reuse" the data received.

The consultation ended on Monday 11 October 2010.
