Holyrood’s annual FOI conference will be returning in-person for the first time since 2019.

Despite challenges caused by the pandemic, Freedom of Information (FOI) in Scotland has fared well over the past two years. However, two decades after the passage of Scotland’s FOI law, it is clear that there are areas for improvement.

With the Scottish Government due consult on potential changes to FOI – following the Scottish Parliament’s post-legislative review of FOISA in 2020 – and plans to extend its coverage to more organisations providing public services, this event is the ideal opportunity to hear about the next steps for FOI in Scotland.

Bringing together key stakeholders, sessions will focus on what the possible changes could be and how they might affect those working in the public and third sectors. As always, we’ll showcase examples of best practice in the delivery of existing legislation and share tips on how to overcome common issues experienced by those involved in FOI.

With keynote addresses from George Adam MSP, Minister for Parliamentary Business at the Scottish Government and the Scottish Information Commissioner, Daren Fitzhenry, this is a must attend event in the FOI calendar.

  • Freedom of information
