A thorough introduction to the law on Freedom of Information (FoI) in the UK, specifically with regards to the basic right to information, reasons FoI requests can be refused, the procedure and appeals process behind FoI requests, and a special section covering European law and environmental information.
This talk was delivered at A4ID’s Training for Development Partners event, held 15-17 March 2011 in London. These training events are designed to provide an introduction to key areas of law for development organisations and their work. Each training seminar is tailored to the NGO context and includes presentations and case studies presented by leading lawyers, many of whom work for A4ID’s Legal Partners. Presentations are prepared for an audience without any prior legal knowledge or training.
