5th International Conference of Information Commissioners, November 26-29, 2007
Although the Right to Information (RTI) movement has made substantial progress over the last decade, there are still several threats to its ultimate success. Five challenges are canvassed: problems in the workability of RTI law; changes in the governmental "infostructure"; privatisation of government functions; changes in the security sector; and the lack of adequate investment in scholarly research on RTI systems. Keynote address to the International Conference of Information Commissioners, Wellington NZ, November 2007. Spanish translation appended to the English text.
