How can the Council of the EU make its law-making work more transparent? This is the question the European Ombudsman raises in her latest public consultation. Emily O'Reilly seeks feedback from the public, civil society, national parliaments and beyond. The consultation asks nine questions, including what measures the Council could take to make legislative documents easier to find and what difficulties are faced in trying to obtain documents linked to Council preparatory bodies. The deadline for the responses is December 1, 2017.
