چکیده: 

There is a wealthy body of literature on the “why” and “how” of media and information literacy (MIL) explaining why MIL is an inseparable component of knowledge societies and why it is a requirement for building a culture of Open Government (OG).‎ However, this literature mainly reflects the outsiders’ perspectives.‎ These include information literacy experts, media experts and advocates of the Information for All Programme.‎  Although the outsiders’ views highlight some aspects of MIL, they do not address the “wants”, “wishes” and “worries” of those who are actually part of the OG formation process.‎ These include people, government and the media who participate in, and contribute to, the creation and communication of information in the context of OG.‎ As a result, there is a gap between the outsiders’ definitions of MIL, and what MIL would actually mean in the actual contexts of OG, as perceived and experienced by those who play a part in it.‎  To fill the gap, this article proposes a contextual-participatory approach as it gives room to those whose lived experiences and concerns are the key source of insight for understanding situations and phenomena.‎
