The Openness Index

The "Accountability, Technology and Institutional Openness Network in South-eastern Europe - ACTION SEE" project provides a platform for dialogue and a concrete tool for measuring the degree to which state institutions uphold principles and standards of open governance (The Openness Index).

The "Openness Index" is a composite indicator that measures the degree to which governments in the Western Balkan countries are open to citizens.

The research and measuring covered six Western Balkan countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.

In each of them, the openness of the institutions was measured within:

  • Legislative authorities (parliaments)
  • Executive authorities (governments, ministries, executive agencies)
  • Judicial authorities (courts, prosecutors, judges and prosecutors)
  • Local self-governments
