The Center for Law and Democracy's Global Right to Information Rating

Description

The Center for Law and Democracy’s Global Right to Information Rating (RTI) scores and ranks 111 countries using 61 indicators to compare the strength of legal frameworks for the right to information, reaching a coverage of almost 100% (only 112 countries total have right to information laws). The information below was compiled from responses to AidData’s 2016 GDA Snap Poll, which asked public, private and civil society leaders to answer 11 questions about whether, when, and why they use governance data in their work. A total of 29 participants to the snap poll indicated familiarity with the RTI.
