As for RIGHT TO KNOW/FREE ACCESS TO INFORMATION, OMI´s goal is to provide inputs for an inclusive public debate on this highly important topic and prepare also the recommendations for new legislation. Therefore, we have intensively studied the approaches taken to free access to information by other countries, which can serve as inspiration for Myanmar taking into account the specific Myanmar context. In the current post-elections situation in Myanmar, we see many opportunities to raise the awareness of the right to know and contribute to its promotion in the Myanmar Parliament as well as among the Myanmar´s general public. Therefore, we are also preparing background information materials together with Myanmar lawyers and we also in touch with the representatives of a new Myanmar Parliament on this matter.
