On 28 September, we marked the International Day for Universal Access to Information, a day that commemorates the need for greater information transparency and the the right to know.

In line with this year’s theme, a recent talkshow looked at how we could promote transparency in times of crisis, including by adopting federal-level right-to-information legislation.

On the panel were:

  • Wathshlah Naidu, Centre for Independent Journalism
  • Cynthia Gabriel, Centre to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4)
  • Nik Nazmi, Setiawangsa MP
  • Kuek Ser Kuang Keng, Data-N
  • Meena Rahman, Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM)

Moderator: Zan Azlee

This talkshow was jointly organised by CIJ and C4
