Culture of Implementing Freedom of Information in Australia Report Launch

OVIC, alongside Monash University, the Office of the Information Commissioner Western Australia and the South Australian Ombudsman, invites you to attend the launch of the Monash University report on the Culture of Implementing Freedom of Information in Australia.

This report, led by Monash University's Associate Professor Johan Lidberg and Adjunct Professor Moira Paterson, is the culmination of a three-year research project to determine attitudes toward and broad cultural trends of Freedom of Information (FOI).

Please join us as we launch the report in this online event and discuss the study and importance of improving the culture of FOI in Australia. Speakers include lead researchers Associate Professor Johan Lidberg and Adjunct Professor Moira Paterson, Victorian Information Commissioner Sean Morrison, Western Australian Information Commissioner Catherine Fletcher, and South Australian Ombudsman Emily Strickland.

About the report

Monash University has partnered with OVIC, the Office of the Information Commissioner Western Australia and the South Australian Ombudsman to develop the study to capture and analyse sentiments and attitudes from FOI practitioners, executive leaders, and government ministers towards information access implementation.

Participants in the study were drawn from a number of agencies, including the health sector, government departments, statutory agencies, local government, and the university sector. As a result of information collected during the study, the report provides eleven recommendations to improve both FOI legislation and FOI administration to enhance the culture and operation of Freedom of Information.

The report will be shared with registrants following the launch event.

To find out more about the study, visit the Monash University website.
