This chapter examines the broader issues that concern information. It first summarises why the information policy was chosen as a way to understand the attitudes towards — and definitions of — citizenship. This is followed by a section on governments' attitudes to information in a ‘culture of secrecy’. It also talks about the nature of the concept and if it can be considered as a public good.

Keywords:   information, information policy, government attitudes, secrecy, public good
