Access Info Europe, n-ost, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, Transparency International Croatia, Transparency International Bosnia and Herzegovina, Transparency Serbia, CIN and Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) conducted a two-day training in 2013 on using freedom of information regulation in their work based on Legal Leaks.
The Legal Leaks toolkit is designed for journalists working in any media – newspapers, radio, and television – as well as bloggers and other information professionals who need to get access to information held by public bodies for their stories.
The toolkit is for journalists making requests in their own country or considering submitting a request in another country. It is based on a comparative analysis of the access to information laws in the region covered by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, which has 56 participating states in Europe, Central Asia and North America; of these 45 have legal provisions on the right of access to information held by public bodies which are reviewed in this analysis.
