Transparency and Information

Since the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty (see Art. 11 TEU and Art. 15 TFEU), the EU institutions are taking more action to involve citizens in the policy process and to make the law-making procedures more transparent.

In addition to the development of public access to documents more registers were created in order to identify, for example, cooperation with stakeholders, use of external expert groups and advisory committees, or the distribution of subsidies.
