Research on the Application of the right of Free Access to Public Information on the part of Journalists

Posted in Featured, Tools

In order to get a clear picture of the current application of the right to free access to public information on the part of journalists, we have conducted the present in-depth research, which encompasses surveys of journalists, screening of institutions on how they respond to journalists’ requests for information and a comparative overview of the legal deadlines for obtaining a response in the Republic of Macedonia and in other European countries, as well as in the European Union. The research provides us with a solid overview of the current state of affairs and is a good starting point for an efficient implementation of further activities in the direction of greater application of the Law on Free Access to Public Information on the part of journalists, which would in turn influence the improvement of the quality of reporting/disseminating information.
