The OSCE Mission to Montenegro has strengthened the country’s efforts to provide greater access to information, including Montenegrin civil society in the process. Following legislative reform, the OSCE Mission organized training programs to ensure that the 2005 Law on Free Access to Information was properly implemented. The initial law was followed by complementary legislation protecting personal data and classified information, which members of Montenegrin civil society have been active in testing and utilizing.
