Nowadays, active legislative reforms are being implemented in Ukraine, which are gradually introducing conceptual provisions on ensuring the right of the individual to information and aiming to effectively overcome the identified negative factors by introducing European standards in the field of the individual’s right to information, however, to transform approaches to the right of the individual to information. in the context of European integration, attention is paid only fragmentarily, which in turn actualises the topic. The aim of this article is to investigate the transformation of approaches to the essence and content of a person’s right to in-formation in the context of Ukraine’s European integration reforms. The outlined subject matter was explored through the approbation of the system of conceptual approaches and a set of general scientific and special scientific methods. Compar-ative analysis of the legal acts of Ukraine and the European Union in the research area displayed that it is now possible to refer to the imperfection of Ukrainian legal regulation in the field of securing, regulating and protecting the right of a person to information. Five urgent steps were proposed for the most prudent transformations of the person’s right to information in Ukraine in the context of European integra-tion.
