Following the establishment of CC IGO licences, a number of intergovernmental organizations, development banks and other major public interest bodies have sought to take advantage of the possibility to give greater access to their work. However, in parallel others - often for financial reasons - have either stuck to older models, or chosen paths which fall short of full open access. This session will present research into the current state of licensing of the outputs of public interest intergovernmental organizations, identify best practices, and open discussions on how we can do better.
