Transparency International’s Brussels office publishes integrity report

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

EUIS_ReportOn 29 April, the Brussels-based EU office of international NGO Transparency International launched the first-ever comprehensive integrity report on the European institutions.

The report, which covers most of the European institutions and a number of key agencies and bodies in 246 pages, seeks to provide the state of the art in the EU’s laws and practices with regard to integrity issues. Among other issues of good governance, it traces the rules and practices that are in place with regard to transparency and accountability, both of which are discussed separately for each institution.


Access Info Europe releases report on EU transparency

Friday, May 20th, 2011

On 21 March of this year, Access Info Europe, a Madrid-based advocacy organisation favouring greater access for citizen to government information, published a report on the state of play in the EU’s transparency policy.

In their report, AIE had wanted to list the positions of all of the EU’s 27 member state governments in the ongoing reform talks of the current access to documents legislation (regulation 1049/2001/ec). However, the researchers gradually concluded that 16 out of 27 member states refused to put forward a position on this matter. A large part of the report is therefore devoted to the application procedures that the researchers went through, as well to the patchwork interpretation of various of the EU’s member states. It makes for insightful, interesting reading on the current state of affairs when it comes to implementing regulation 1049.
