Australia's FOI reform landscape

If you are interested in some detail about Freedom of Information reforms around the country over the last year, these notes are from my brief overview before facilitating a panel session involving the Commonwealth, NSW, Queensland and Western Australian information commissioners at the recent National Administrative Law Forum in Sydney on 23 July. There's a book in the subject, and I expect Moira Paterson is gearing up for a second edition of Freedom of Information and Privacy in Australia (Lexis Nexus Butterworths 2005), so all that was possible in 15 minutes was a high level look at some common themes and important differences - without much commentary.
