Description One of the key principles of (the Czech Republic as) a democratic state (and also of its good governance) is also the principle of transparency (freedom of information). Based on the above (and on the Article 17 of the Czech Charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms), this chapter presents, interprets, analyzes and evaluates both the legal regulation and the state (public administration) practice of the access to information in the Czech Republic (with particular emphasis on beneficiaries of access to information, entities bound by law, the request for access, the response / answer and the timeframes for responding / answering, providing public information ex officio as well as excepted information and fees and costs).
