Access to Information in the Nordic Countries

Public or secret documents and data

Access to Information in the Nordic Countries explains and compares the legal rules determining public access to documents and data in Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, and Iceland. In addition, international rules emanating from the United Nations, the Council of Europe and the European Union are elucidated.

The research project was conducted by Oluf Jørgensen, Head of Research in Media Law, Danish School of Media and Journalism 2012 – 14, and published by Nordicom:

Summary in English: Acces to Information in the Nordic Countries.

This publication in English is based on a more comprehensive Danish version published in Nordicom-Information No 3/2014, Nordicom, University of Gothenburg.

Short summary incl. recommendations: Public or Secret.

Free access to documents and data is crucial to democratic control and participation. Rules of law and legal practice concerning access and secrecy are of far-reaching significance to all sectors of society and to the relationship between citizens and the state.

Access to Information in the Nordic Countries demonstrates that, in the five Nordic countries, right-of-access rules are very different.

  • London, baby 😏 De første tre-fire semestre var jeg med i bestyrelsen i @hejfrakaj. Udover at lære en masse om den branche jeg skal ud i, så lærte jeg også en masse cool mennesker at kende fra forskellige uddannelser gennem @mediestuderende. I den her weekend er jeg taget til London sammen med @ppstorgaard (journalist), hvor vi er mødtes med @laulefholm (TVM) til en pint. Søndag skal vi se Amerikansk Fodbold, når Arizona Cardinals og Los Angeles Rams spiller. 🏈😎 Fagforeninger og fagligt arbejde er cirka ligeså kedeligt, som det lyder - men sammenholdet er noget helt særligt ✌️😋 #dmjx #dmjxminuge @danielhjepsen
