European Ombudsman report reaffirms central place of all matters related to transparency in EU watchdog’s work.
Ombudsman considers that initial Council measures were “not in line with the Treaty” and regrets transparency gaps, but stops short of declaring maladministration.
The Academy of Finland-funded research project “Transparency in the EU: from reaction to manifesto” aims at breaking down the practices assigned to transparency in the EU, laying bare shortcomings and seeking solutions. TrUE project researchers Päivi Leino-Sandberg and Maarten Hillebrandt provide some examples of the types of researcher-institution interactions to which the project has led, and the lessons that can be drawn from them.
Webinar “Challenging the European institutions on transparency: Analysing Leino-Sandberg v Parliament and two Ombudsman complaints” to take place on Thursday 18 February 2021.
