The Institutions of the European Union endeavour to be transparent, open and accessible. They want to be seen in the best possible light by the public at large. We share this objective, and intend to contribute to its achievement.
A survey which forms part of the study “Open Justice: transparency and proximity to justice within the current context of Open Government” is now available for public participation. The study intends to explore the concept of Open Justice using the philosophy and principles of Open Government and apply those to the sphere of law.
The Publications Office launched the new portal to EU law. Clearly structured, attractively designed and with improved content, it offers you interesting new features. The EUR-Lex website is now the single point of access to legal information of the European Union: the Official Journal, EU law and case-law, consolidated versions of EU legislation, legislative procedures and other collections. The new portal uses innovative technologies and insights in information management — such as linked data technologies — and thus paves the way for cutting-edge functionalities and a better user experience.
Parltrack is a European initiative to improve the transparency of legislative processes. It combines information on dossiers, representatives, vote results and committee agendas into a unique database and allows the tracking of dossiers using email and RSS. Most of the data presented is also available for further processing in JSON format. Using Parltrack it's easy to see at a glance which dossiers are being handled by committees and MEPs.
