The fourth Global Conference on Transparency Research will take place in Lugano from 4 to 6 June 2015. A conference website with all necessary information has recently been opened.
The GCTR is a conference that assembles leading academics, policy makers, and interest group representatives to “discuss current policies on access to information, transparency relationships among government entities, transparency dynamics between public and private and non-profit entities.” Previous editions have seen transparency research in contexts as diverse as the United States, the European Union, South Korea, and Kenia. The first global transparency conference was held in Newark in 2011. Prof. Albert Meijer of the Open Government in the EU team hosted the conference at Utrecht University in 2012, while the third conference was held in at the HEC in Paris (2013).
Deadline for submissions is 15 February 2015.
