Abstract

Transparency has only a brief history in the EFTA pillar of the European Economic Area. Nevertheless, this principle transplanted from the Nordic legal traditions is having an increasing impact for the public good. This article considers the development of the rules enacting transparency and openness and examines the EFTA Court’s jurisprudence on access to documents and transparency more widely.

Keywords: European Union, International, Access To File, Principle of Transparency
