ABSTRACT
Abstract. Information, being an interdisciplinary term, plays an important role in the process of communication forming, thus, the structure of knowledge. The notion of information should be understood as ordered data, or decontextualised sequences of signs that, in a deÞ ned set and together with some rules, create a set of information. When attempting to analyse the right to information, one should familiarise with that right in the context of freedom of expression, which implies the right to possess one’s own opinions, to pass, search and obtain information and ideas, as well as the right to the freedom of media. Considering the fact that the right to information discussed in international documents refers to various aspects of life and situational contexts, it is necessary to constantly Þ ne-tune regulations included both in the international standards of human rights in the universal system, as well as in the norms of the local law. The content of the right to information requires some improvements in the times of the information society for the notion of information has been evolving together with the civilisation progress. What has also been evolving is the feeling of endangerment as many modern mass media, including the internet, have occurred which triggered a kind of an explosion of information causing a lot of most varied emotions.
