Without transparency there’s no democracy.

José Molina. Why transparency? – Editorial Aranzadi (2016)

Spain has evolved from being practically the last of the great western states in Europe without a law of transparency, to have different laws in this area (state law and regional laws). However, this paradigm shift in our public institutions – and society in general – is not caused “just” because a change in legislation. Transparency laws help institutions to be more transparent, but that does not necessarily mean reaching a “real transparency”.

In desideDatum we believe that our public administrations should be transparent and not just pretend it, and therefore we advise them to achieve such real transparency. Among other objectives, we promote a transparency with the following goals:

  • The maximum information available (not only the one required  by the laws).
  • Using people’s language (not the language of the administration).
  • Promoting information display (for easy understanding).
  • Demanding openness and reuse of data (to allow citizens reach their own conclusions).
  • Verifying the information provided by the authorities, because only this provides the context needed to be transparent.
