When the Openwashing is Over: Protecting the Right to Know

Zara Rahman

D&S fellow Zara Rahman explores the need for access to information and open data, i.e. the right to know.

Given these growing threats, combined with our increased knowledge of government secrecy and surveillance, and new possibilities through widespread technologies, it feels like we should be focusing more than ever on strengthening our right to information. This means directing funding towards it, supporting the established RTI community, and directing resources towards exercising our right to information when we can.
