Right to Know’ Day
‘Right to Know’ Day celebrates, once a year, the right of individuals to access information held by government bodies and encourages transparent, accessible government. It is marked worldwide each year by over 100 countries including Jamaica by activities that celebrate the public’s right to know. The celebration of ‘International Right to Know Day 'continues to grow globally with the continued growth in the number of countries with access to information laws and public access regimes. The Government of Jamaica guaranteed the right of the public to access official government documents by the passage of the Access to Information Act in 2002. Our theme for Right to Know Week this year is ‘Access to Information: Empowering a Developing Nation’ focuses on the empowerment that information rights provide to every member of the public in the conduct of their affairs and that of their community.
