Senate Human Rights Commission adopts the Right to Know

On 22 June the Human Rights Commission Italian Senate has adopted a resolution urging the government to work to a full recognition of the “right to know”. A move dictated by the urgency to provide Italy and Europe with a fresh drive to protect democratic information. The resolution follows up on the recommendation issued by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe which passed a similar resolution in June 2021 on media freedom, public trust and the peoples’ right to know.
