Filed under - Technology

Report published 18 March 2016
Image of publication cover

This case study – one of three produced – focuses on lobbying in the European Union and aims to provide guidance to policy-makers and activists in a diverse range of countries for how specific data sets can used to prevent, detect and investigate corruption. All three case studies look at national chapter or regional initiatives carried out by the Transparency International movement. These initiatives have been designed to leverage open data sets as part of addressing corruption. As such, the studies do not assess the broader landscape of open data or how it has been used in other areas to promote change.
