À propos de l'événement

"International Right to Know Day - Transparency and accountability in international development banks"

Seminar organised by the European Ombudsman in cooperation with the Complaints Mechanism of the European Investment Bank

28 September 2012, 09.00 - 13.00
Room ASP A1-G2, European Parliament, Brussels

The International Right to Know Day, celebrated each year on 28 September, was established in 2003 by access to information advocates from around the world. Given that approximately one third of the inquiries carried out by his Office annually concern lack of transparency, the European Ombudsman is keen to highlight the importance of every individual's right of access to information. This year, he is cooperating with the Complaints Mechanism of the European Investment Bank to focus on transparency and accountability in European and international development banks.
