Open Data and Political Integrity

We have recently launched our report about the challenges and opportunities for harnessing open data in five key political integrity areas (public procurement, beneficial ownership, lobbying, conflict of interest/asset disclosure and financing of political parties). Our findings show that Sweden lacks key datasets in these areas critical for a transparent and open government:

2020: Ostling A., Mickiewicz T. and Greco A. (2020). “Open data for political integrity in Sweden: a “non-issue”?“. Research report with policy recommendations. Open Knowledge Sweden.

2019: A comparative report on “Open Data and Political Integrity in the Nordic Region” was launched by our partner, Transparency International in Latvia.

2018: OKS has contributed to a study carried out by the Transparency International Latvia, in collaboration with Open Knowledge Finland, on Open data and anti-corruption policies in Latvia, Sweden and Finland.
