In Ukraine, access to public information is guaranteed by the law; however, there is also a law on personal data protection. Sometimes journalists and activists encounter refusals of their requests for socially significant information because of the law on personal data protection. When are such refusals justified, and when are they just a manipulation whose goal is to cover up corrupt activities? What are the consequences of breaking the law on personal data protection? How is the problem solved in other countries?
Participants in the discussion: representatives of the ombudsman office, lawyers, journalists, activists.
