Building on the findings of this project, the University of Dundee has opened applications for students to work under Professor Reid and staff members from the School of Business to conduct doctoral research on freedom of information and its application in practice.
The first of these projects is titled “Examining the Impact of Public/Private Hybrid Bodies in the Provision of Public Services and on Accountability through Freedom of Information”. The project seeks to analyse the intersection between freedom of information and the divide between public and private bodies in light of the growing trend of privitisation.

The second project is titled “Interactions between Transparency, Accountability and the Sustainable Development Goals: Freedom of Information as a Test for Implementation Within Public, Private and Hybrid Bodies”. This project examines the ability of freedom of information laws to contribute to sustainable development and the sustainable development goals established by the United Nations.
