Name of law: The Law of Mongolia on Information Transparency and Right to Information First adopted: 2011 Last modified: n/a RTI Rating last updated: 2019-08


The biggest problem with Mongolia's right to information law is its regime of exception, which is overly broad, not harm tested and lacks a proper public interest override. This is a shame, since the law's broad scope, strong procedural safeguards and robust appeals mechanism could otherwise make for a highly effective legal framework. The law also suffers from having weak promotional measures.
