OSFA, Rule of Law and Human Rights Program- "Government Accountability vis--vis Judicial Decisions"  (2013) OSFA-Soros Foundation
   
Under a contract with the Open Society Foundation for Albania, IPLS is implementing a project that aims to overhaul Albania's 13 years old Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Following a detailed analysis of the problems encountered by civil society organizations, media and individuals in the course of FOIA applications, in May 2012 IPLS and OSFA organized a major stakeholders' conference where the findings of the analysis and the proposed areas of intervention were thoroughly debated. Strong of the conference's feedback IPLS proceeded with the drafting stage which was completed in January 2013. The main features of the proposed Albanian FOIA include: a) a new oversight body; b) full proportionality and public interest test for all FOIA exceptions (including classified data); c) strong emphasis on proactive publishing of information by public bodies; and d) enhanced administrative review and sanctioning powers. In February 2013, the Ministry of Justice initiated the round of legislative consultations based on the IPLS draft. We will be following closely the legislative process until its completion.
