Lobby Regulation and Transparency

The Sunlight Foundation, Access Info Europe, Transparency International and Open Knowledge are co-organizing this session to boost the conversation around lobbying transparency and gather evidence from the open government community that can guide future reform efforts.

We want to hear more about the challenges activists face when trying to introduce lobbying regulation and how they think lobbying should be defined. We will showcase transparency projects that translate lobbying into stories average citizens can relate to - such as Influence Explorer and LobbyPlag. We want to talk about how to better advocate for lobbying data, how to translate the information that’s available, and how to connect the dots about the influence industry without reliable government data. The session will introduce and discuss ongoing efforts to create globally applicable principles for definitions, disclosure and enforcement, and touch base on advocacy campaigns that proved successful.

You don't have to be an expert in lobbying regulation to attend -- we want to begin a dialogue that fits the needs and challenges of a broader segment of this community.

This session was co-created by the Lobbying Transparency Open Knowledge Working Group. This session remains editorially independent as it was put together in consultation with the Programme Team following the same guidelines as for other sessions at the festival.
