Towards Proactive Transparency in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Publisher: Center for Social Research Analitika, Bosnia and Herzegovina
The legal framework on freedom of access to information in Bosnia and Herzegovina should include provisions on proactive disclosure of information held by public institutions, according to this Center for Social Research Analitika policy brief.
“The debate on the right of access to information in BiH to date has almost entirely disregarded the principle of proactive disclosure of information held by public authorities,” Analitika said. “The principle of disclosure has been recognized as good practice in the context of the right to access information and is a part of the institutional framework of many countries.”
The paper was published as part of Advocacy for Open Government, an EU-funded PASOS project to encourage governments in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia to become more transparent.
