Access to Public Administration Files and Confidentiality
Keywords:Administrative law, access to public information, act on access to public administration files, confidentiality.
AbstractThis Article deals with relations between legal provisions on confidentiality on one hand and the Act on Access to Public Administration Files no. 140/2012 on the other. It describes differences between general and special clauses on confidentiality in Icelandic law and analyses their effect on public access to information. The author also argues for better quality of confidentiality provisions in Icelandic law i.e. to enhance a balanced progress of rights of access to administrative files.
