Study | 18 June 2007

The Transparency Charter for International Financial Institutions: Claiming our Right to Know is based on the right to access information held by public bodies a fundamental human right set out in Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which guarantees the right to seek, receive and impart information and ideas. This right applies to intergovernmental organisations, just as it does at the national level.
