Leave a comment

With government getting more secretive and Brexit looming, where do we stand with FOI?

Listen in to this talk by myself and the BBC’s Martin Rosenbaum at Newspeak House to find out where FOI came from and where it might go next.

FOI-Why Bother? (19 April 2017)

We ask why do governments pass FOI laws when they have no votes in them? What happens once they are passed? And how will the 2017 General Election and Brexit shape the future of openness?

You can see the slides hereFOI Newspeak and chapter one of my book here.
