Information asymmetry is one of the main factors for imperfect decision making by the government, citizens and for market inefficiency. With the advent of information and communication technologies, it becomes easier to be best informed about what government is doing, what are the entitlements not reaching the target people, and most importantly, the scope of being heard has been improved dramatically. Access to information and knowledge through ICTs is relatively a new issue for the population of developing countries.

This report presents the main conclusions of the case study about Public Access to ICT (PAI) venues that was developed as part of the first stage of the project entitled The Global Impact Study of Public Access to Information and Communication Technologies. The study was developed between June and September 2008 in Chile.

The material presented in this report is related to the experiences and findings of exploratory fieldwork activities carried out in Lithuania for the Global Impact Study of Public Access to Information and Communication Technologies. The main objectives of this exploratory fieldwork are related to collection of background information and data on practices of usage of public access to ICTs on the basis of which research questions could be generated. Also, this activity has objectives of piloting both certain research approach and instrumental aspects of research development.
