"Tackling Corruption through Open Data" research roundtable
Date & time: Monday, 9th June 2014, 14:00 hrs to 16:00hrs
Venue: Norton Rose Fulbright LLP

Transparency International UK are conducting research on UK issues as part of an international "Tackling Corruption through Open Data" project.
We are delighted to invite you to the first research roundtable of that project, which will focus on assessing official disclosure routes (including FOIA and Open Data) and comparing them to unofficial disclosure routes (including forms of Investigative Journalism, forms of Whistleblowing, other leaks) as a means of uncovering corruption. The purpose of the discussion is to identify what unofficial disclosure routes can tell us about the information that should be made available through official disclosure routes to help detect or deter corrupt behaviour in the public sector.
The roundtable participants will be a mix of around 20 stakeholders from across central government, local government, civic society, the media, academia, data intelligence experts, and freedom of information and open governance campaigners.
We are pleased to confirm opening contributions to discussion from:
·         Nick Mathiason, Bureau of Investigative Journalism
·         Tom Steinberg, Director of My Society (With sites including Theyworkforyou.com &whatdotheyknow.com)
·         Maurice Frankel, Director of The Campaign for Freedom of Information
We would be very much hope this invitation is of interest to you and look forward to hearing from you.
