AlGOVrithms 3.0: How automated are our public procedures?
Considering the need to further address the use of algorithms in public procedures, as was identified in the previous project editions of alGOVrithms, this year’s edition, namely alGOVrithms 3.0: How automated are our public procedures, will continue to address and highlight the importance of using algorithms (automated decision making) in terms of public procedures in the targeted countries: Poland, Czechia, Hungary, and Kosovo. Advocacy efforts and policy recommendations provided by the partners organisations from these countries during the implementation of the alGOVrithms 3.0, will also aim to put on the forefront focus the area of e-governance in the local level.
The partnering organisations which will implement the project, Open Data Kosovo (Kosovo), Institute for Law and Society INPRIS (Poland), K-Monitor Közhasznú Egyesület (Hungary), and KohoVolit.eu (Czechia), as part of previous efforts have conducted cutting edge research regarding the transparency of government-run automated decision making (ADM) processes in the Visegrad and Western Balkans region. As of 2019, there has not been identified the existence of a comprehensive legal framework regulating the process of alGOVrithm (term coined by the organisations implementing the project) implementation and usage of their transparency. As leading anti-corruption, and open data organisations, the implementing partners will implement this consecutive edition of the project, as a follow up on the roadmap which was provided previously. The aim of this project amongst others is to provide an updated overview from the monitoring process of the use of ADM processes in the targeted countries.
This project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund, as well the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
