European Public Accountability Mechanisms (EuroPAM)

EuroPAM is an EU-funded digital data-collection database that aims to improve trust in governments and efficiency of public spending across Europe.

EuroPAM is part of an EU-funded digital whistleblowing project (DIGIWHIST) as well as an extension of the Public Accountability Mechanisms Initiative (PAM) of the World Bank.

The website offers meaningful information and tools about transparency in public spending and accountability of public officials to the civil society, investigative journalists, and civil servants. Its database contains useful information based on laws and aggregated data concerning five main indicators, or “accountability mechanisms”: political financing, financial disclosure, conflict of interest restrictions, freedom of Information/right to information, public procurement.

The database includes all 28 EU countries plus Armenia, Georgia, Iceland, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland and the European Parliament and/or the European Commission. Data is downloadable in .xlxs format.
