Welcome to the Transatlantic Conference on Transparency Research.
Dates: June 7-9, 2012
Location: Utrecht University, Utrecht, Netherlands
The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers from North-America and Europe in order to exchange the latest findings and insights concerning transparency and open government. This transatlantic conference on transparency research follows up on the 1st Global Conference on Transparency Research which was held in Newark (NJ) in May 2011. We explicitly aim to bring together scholars from various disciplines such as public administration, law, political science, journalism, sociology, etc.
The conference aims to bring together leading scholars to collectively advance our understanding of the impact and implications of transparency policies. Topics to be included are studies of policies on access to information held by and about governments, investigations of transparency relationships between government entities and theoretical, normative and empirical analyses of access to information held by government about individuals.
