The Office of the Attorney General of Samoa in conjunction with the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly of Samoa initiated a project under the name of the "Legislative Drafting Handbook Project". This handbook documents the legislative drafting requirements for use in Samoa from July 1st 2008.
The guide seeks to rekindle debate and discussion about the value of freedom of information laws, as well as to provide a practical roadmap for their introduction, where necessary.
The guide is in three parts.
Part 1 traces developments in the field across the Pacific
Part 2 examines the principles necessary to underpin sound freedom of information laws.
Part 3 identifies 13 key elements needed for proper and effective freedom of information legislation.
