Transparency International prepares a tool to follow media publications covering journalism. This project is supported by the European Commission. ECO is a new media monitoring tool that will focus solely on corruption related stories. The database will collate media stories about corruption across the 28 member states. The content will then be tagged which will allow for users to search the database for media stories by country, named individual (and variants), named company, sectors and type of corruption (bribery, fraud, undue influence etc. and combinations of these). This will help facilitate the analysis and identification of trends in corruption across the EU as well as assist in the identification of cross-border cases of corruption. Sitting alongside this media monitoring tool will be ECO match – a “dating website” for all those interested in investigating corruption. This online portal will create a network of journalists, hackers, civil society, corruption experts, policy makers and law enforcement agencies across all of the member states. This will help encourage further collaboration among the network and assist users in finding key partners around the EU to further their investigations into corruption. Dataharvest participants are invited to comment on the tool.

This seminar is organised by Transparency International and Journalismfund.eu, and financed by the European Commission.
