Westminster Foundation for Democracy, within the framework of EU-funded Media Dialogue Project, conducted an analysis of the legal framework for the Right to Information (RTI) in Kyrgyzstan. At the same time, focusing on the Law on Access to Information (ATI), as well as the Law on Guarantees and other related laws. The analysis was carried out by international expert Toby Mendel with the support of local expert Nargiza Abdraimova.
We would like to share the results of the analysis and recommendations of our experts for improving the legislation. The analysis does not propose to replace the law on ATI with a completely new law, on the contrary, it recommends the introduction of appropriate amendments to the law, which would improve it in the long term.
