European Public Accountability Mechanisms


EuroPAM is a data collection effort that produces assessments of in-law and in-practice efforts to enhance the transparency of public administration and the accountability of public officials in all EU and neighbouring countries. It is compiled and published by a team of researchers at the European Research Centre for Anti-Corruption and State-Building (ERCAS) at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin. It is funded and conceived as part of the EU Horizon 2020 DIGIWHIST project, a collaborative research project with the aim of empowering society to combat public sector corruption. The main editor of the EuroPAM is ERCAS researcher Aram Khaghaghordyan.

We are frequently reviewing and refining our methodology and are happy to receive any feedback that you might have. We also are happy to help you work with the EuroPAM and are open to collaborations for further analysis. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any requests or questions:
