The Government Transparency Institute’s foundation in 2015 was motivated by growing need and opportunity to do independent research and advocacy on transparency, corruption and quality of government in Europe and beyond. The Institute is a non-partisan think tank independent of governments, political parties or special interest groups. The aim of the Institute is to systematically explore the causes, characteristics, and consequences of low quality of government in an inter-disciplinary approach drawing on political science, economics, law, and data science. The Institute aims to aid citizens to hold governments accountable through the publication of large datasets and robust analysis.
Role in the project: data mapping, indicator development and validation
