Freedom of Information and the Developing World
The Citizen, the State and Models of Openness
- Colin Darch
- Peter G Underwood, University of Cape Town, South Africa
Rather than simply summarising the state of play in African countries and elsewhere, Freedom of Information and the Developing World identifies and makes explicit the assumptions about the citizenâs relationship to the state that lie beneath Freedom of Information (FoI) discourse. The book goes on to test them against the reality of the pervasive politics of patronage that characterise much of African practice.
