Abstract

Demands for oversight over government operations and the desire for citizens to become more engaged in the democratic process had helped usher in the Freedom of Information Act. This Article argues for extending a similar general duty of disclosure requirement to corporations, because corporations hold pertinent information required for democratic participation. This Article examines the justifications for this general duty of disclosure and reviews existing disclosure mechanisms employ by various countries.
