Description

Do you have a 'Right to Know'?

The Right to Information Act 2009 was designed to improve the transparency of government decision making by giving citizens, journalists, politicians and NGOs timely access to the information supporting government decisions.

Is it working?

To celebrate international Right to Know week, Community Legal Centres Tasmania is hosting this free event discussing how the Right to Information Act 2009 operates in practice, and whether it is achieving its aims.

Renowned expert on access to information, UTAS Acting Dean of Law School and Associate Professor Rick Snell, will present a “frank and fearless assessment of Tasmania’s RTI framework”, followed by a panel discussion featuring:

  • Richard Connock, Tasmanian Ombudsman
  • Cassy O’Connor, Leader of the Tasmanian Greens
  • Madeleine Ogilvie, Labor Shadow Minister for Open Government & Information Integrity
  • Dale Webster, Executive Director for Consumer, Building and Occupational Services, Department of Justice
  • David Killick, Political Reporter, The Mercury
