We have analyzed 18 important transparency policies. These policies aim to reduce critical public risks and improve government or corporate performance. Some are successful. Many fail.
For each policy, we summarize the purpose, legislative history, provisions, politics and dynamics. Click on the policy for a case summary. For a summary view on transparency policies, see the answers to our Frequently Asked Questions.
See our most recent book, Full Disclosure, for a more complete analysis of these policies.
