This is your book to help get records they do t want to disclose. Your Right to Kw tells you how to use freedom-of-information laws to gain access to government records on spending, policies and activities. It is a citizen s guide and a research tool for the general public, special-interest groups, journalists and businesses. Freedom-of-information laws exist in dozens of countries, and this book shares the principles of research in easy-to-pursue steps to obtain the information you want from governments and other institutions.
