It is envisaged that the roundtable will consider the following:1. Mutual Information: The current EU position; comparison of different national traditions in relation to freedom of information; and the current political situation at the national level (the issue being highly topical in Britain).2. Urgent European aspects of the Problem: - conflicting interests: Implications of the Net and information technologies on eg the tension between freedom of information and expression, and intellectual property rights. Library is a keyword.3. Our individual and collective responsibilities: What should be said to the politicians and lobbyists in Strasbourg and Brussels?
