Access to Information – an Instrument for Achieving our Goals

On January 29, 2016, the Access to Information Programme (AIP) held the national conference “Access to Information – an Instrument for Achieving Our Goals.” The conference was held in Sofia City Hotel and was dedicated to the amendments to the Access to Public Information Act (promulgated in the State Gazette on December 11, 2015). It was the concluding event of the project “Enhancing the Capacity of Nongovernmental Organizations to Seek Public Information,” supported by a grant under the NGO Programme in Bulgaria under the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area 2009 – 2014 (www.ngogrants.bg).

The 18-minutes educational movie illustrates the stages in searching and obtaining information from public bodies under the procedures of the Bulgarian Access to Public Information Act. It features cases of nongovernmental organizations and journalists who have used the procedures of the APIA, have filed requests to public bodies and have appealed access to information refusals in court.
