The celebration for universal access to information will kick-start in Tunisia on September 25, with a panel event gathering around 250 participants to discuss progress and new initiatives around Tunisia’s Access to Information law. The country’s legislation on access to information is ranked by specialized observers among the “top-ten” best in the world in terms of its adherence to international standards. Mr. Frank La Rue, Assistant Director-General for Communication and Information Sector of UNESCO is to address the event, among other high-level representatives from government, media and civil society.
