ParlTrackPlatform, Software

Description

Parltrack is a European initiative to improve the transparency of legislative processes. It combines information on dossiers, representatives, vote results and committee agendas into a unique database and allows the tracking of dossiers using email and RSS. Most of the data presented is also available for further processing in JSON format. Using Parltrack it's easy to see at a glance which dossiers are being handled by committees and MEPs. Parltrack currently monitors the European law-making using the data available from europarl.europa.eu. The data is being scraped from OEIL, EP plenary minutes, online MEP profiles, IPEX and parliamentary committee agendas.

The objective of LobbyPlag.eu is to make complex and opaque democratic procedures transparent. LobbyPlag.eu obtained about 11.000 pages of classified EU documents and a number of classified German diplomatic cables on the EU data protection reform.
