International spotlight on transparency research

The 8th Global Conference on Transparency Research (GCTR) took place between 15 and 17 May.

THE GCTR brings together academics from across the globe in order to enhance our understanding of the impact and implications of transparency policies that directly or indirectly involve governments. The GCTR engages academics from many different fields, including public administration, political science, journalism and law.

The various panels covered a wide range of transparency-related topics, including algorithmic transparency, democracy and whistleblowers. There was also a great deal of focus on the impact of freedom of information legislation covering the right to information, such as the Dutch Open Government Act.

Leiden Law School’s Louis Honée and Annemarie Drahmann both attended the conference. They presented a paper on the differences in the application of freedom of information laws in Stockholm, London and Amsterdam.
