The Global Transparency Initiative (GTI) will be holding a three-month consultation starting 28 September (international right-to-know day), on a draft charter of transparency principles which the international financial institutions should uphold. The GTI brings together civil society IFI monitors with campaigners on freedom of information. Interested individuals are invited to visit the website where a copy of the draft charter can be downloaded, or contact the charter’s lead author – Toby Mendel – directly.
