The Right to Know
The Right to Know: Access to Information in Southeast Asia examines the state of the media and information access in eight countries in the region: The Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Burma, and Vietnam. It contains the findings of a survey that ranked the countries according to their openness and transparency, showing that the struggle for freedom of information cannot be taken separately from the struggle for democracy.
