Liberia's law is one of the world's most recently passed access laws, having been approved in 2010. It is also one of the top scoring laws. While implementation is difficult to measure at this early stage, our methodology demonstrates that Liberia's lawmakers have laid the groundwork for a bold, progressive, and ambitious access regime. We hope that this legislation will be implemented just as boldly and ambitiously, since it has the potential to turn Liberia into one of the world's most open and transparent governments.
