Abstract

A commentary on Gupta and Mason, who provide a valuable service in highlighting the complex andcontested nature of transparency as a tool of governance. In an era in which information flows and information technology play such fundamental roles, andin which norms about who has the right to know what are so rapidly changing,transparency clearly deserves its place as, in Gupta’s words, “a key concept of ourtimes.”
