Access Info Europe is a human rights organisation dedicated to promoting and protecting the right of access to information in Europe as a tool for defending civil liberties and human rights, for facilitating public participation in decision making, and for holding governments accountable. This mandate is established in our statutes.
Access Info Europe's vision is that the right of access to information contributes to more open, participatory, just, and equal societies. Our vision is that there exists in Europe an empowered and informed citizenry which makes use of and defends the right of access to information. Our vision is also that there is full recognition of the public's right to information as a fundamental human right by all relevant national and international bodies.
