CAIJ Working Groups

Centre for Access to Information and Justice


Working Groups

The CAIJ and its members may decide to structure their inquiries and organize their public interest research projects according to thematically-oriented working groups. CAIJ working groups will use freedom of information (FOI) and other strategies to locate government records for analysis. Contact us or attend the next meeting if you are interested in forming or joining a CAIJ working group!
