This report is part of a larger, region-wide project, entitled ‘Addressing Corruption Through Information and Organized Networking’ (ACTION). ACTION is a four-country project covering Egypt, Morocco, Palestine and Yemen. Its overall goal is to promote access to information and enhance the capacity of civil society, as the basis for good governance and public accountability in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). As part of this project, Transparency International chapters and partners in Egypt, Morocco, Palestine and Yemen carried out research into the potential to access information to the degree necessary to detect and address corruption under existing laws. This report both provides a summary of the findings in the four project countries and an overview of access to information and corruption in the broader Middle East and North Africa region.
