Freedominfo.org is a newly released site that provides data on freedom of information laws from areas all across the globe. Designed to link the efforts of freedom of information advocates around the world and give voice to movements that have previously struggled for greater openness, this site contains a global survey that summarizes these laws in 45 countries. Written by David Banisar of Privacy International, the survey also provides links to the text of each law as well as other relevant sites. In addition, users will also find case studies, news releases, reports, and analysis; and beginning this month, the site will present a regular column called IFTI Watch, which features news regarding access to information in international financial and trade institutions.
