The year 2013 was a significant one for the ombudsman institution: a new Ombudsman was elected and took office, setting the institution on a new course towards greater impact, visibility, and relevance.
The report also presents results of the Ombudsman's investigation into the transparency of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations. It also provides data on its contribution to increasing lobbying transparency in the EU, through investigations, including the composition and transparency of the European Commission’s expert groups and the ‘revolving door’ phenomenon.
Further topics are the data transparency of clinical trials, fundamental rights, ethical issues, participation of citizens in EU decision-making and EU-funded programmes and projects.
The report also includes data on numbers of complaints from individuals, members of civil society organisations, businesses and other interests.
