Anticorruption Open Data Package

Whilst recognizing the importance of transparency to inhibit corruption, it is key to go beyond the idea that disclosing data directly equals reducing corruption. Open data can play a key role to dismantle corruption networks, if governments secure its availability and interoperability. The Anti-Corruption Open Data Package (ACODP) is a practical resource inteded to structure a dialogue among different actors –incnluding governments, civil society organizations and investigative journalists– on the use of open data for preventing, detecting, investigating and sanctioning corruption. The ACODP identifies priority datasets and open data standards that can be use in order to tackle corruption at different levels and to respond to increasingly complex corruption networks.
