Do you know who funds political parties in your country? Or how much side income your politicians make? Transparency International makes this information easy to access and compare on its Integrity Watch datahub. The datahub provides you with a one-stop overview of all the existing Integrity Watch platforms developed through the Integrity Watch Europe project: nine online platforms, based on over 30 harmonised datasets on political integrity collected from eight EU Member States and two EU institutions, and covering 41 per cent of all EU citizens.

Integrity Watch is a set of user-friendly online tools that allow citizens, journalists and civil society to monitor political integrity in their countries. For this purpose, data on lobby meetings, financial interests of public officials, political finance and public procurement – information that is often scattered and difficult to access – is collected, harmonised and made accessible.
