The Open Source Initiative, in order to advance our mission to promote and protect open source software, development and communities, champion software freedom in society through education, collaboration, and infrastructure, steward the Open Source Definition (OSD), and prevent abuse of the ideals and ethos inherent to the open source movement, engages in and with a variety of organizations in various roles and capacities. Those organizations are listed here.
|The CONSUL Foundation supports the CONSUL platform, a complete tool enabeling citizen participation for open, transparent, and democratic government.|
|The European Union Transparency Register: Citizens can, and indeed should, expect the EU decision-making process to be as transparent and open as possible. The more open the process is, the easier it is to ensure balanced representation and avoid undue pressure and illegitimate or privileged access to information or to decision-makers. Transparency is also a key part of encouraging European citizens to participate more actively in the democratic life of the EU. The transparency register has been set up to answer core questions such as what interests are being pursued, by whom and with what budgets. The system is operated jointly by the European Parliament and the European Commission. (OSI EU Transparency Register number 672028337929-77)|
