EPIC has supported a global initiative, led by Access Info, to urge the LIBE Committee of the European Parliament to safeguard government transparency. Under consideration is a proposal to limit open government by withholding documents that are not "formally" transmitted. 180 organizations, journalists, and activists support the campaign, and over 90 countries worldwide have adopted laws, constitutional amendments or regulations protecting the right to freedom of information. For related information, see EPIC: Open Government and EPIC: Privacy & Human Rights: An International Survey of Privacy Laws and Developments.
