The right to access information is a critical component of open government and democracy. Citizens armed with information can participate in decision-making. And they can make governments more efficient and accountable.

Aruna Roy has dedicated her entire life to ensuring citizens are empowered by public information. She is the founder of a non-party political organization that mobilizes collective action in order to secure the rights of the rural poor called MKSS.

In today’s episode Aruna tells us how she contributed to passing the Right to Information Act in India and why her fight isn’t over.
