CSE on Transparency of EU Council legislative work

Civil Society Europe sent a response today to the European Ombudsman on her Public consultation  on the transparency of legislative work within Council preparatory bodies.

Civil Society Europe welcomes this timely consultation in a context of growing citizens’ distrust in institutions both at EU and national  level. Increasing transparency as a means of enhancing dialogue with citizens and their representative associations is therefore vital. The Council remains the least accessible and least transparent EU institution involved in the legislative process. Citizens have the right to know what position their government takes in decisions that impact their lives.
