The right to information is one of the main human rights that protect and develop human life. The use of the right to information will contribute to solving many social and cultural problems at both the individual and national level. However, there are many prerequisites related to economic, social, cultural and political development for realizing the right to information in a country. Unless a country has solved major problems such as hunger, lack of education, poor health, and lack of political freedom, it is not possible to realize the right to information. Individuals who live in developed countries have more possibilities to use the right to information than those living in developing countries. Evaluates the concept of the right to information on the basis of the development difference between developed and developing countries.
