Deployments of Alaveteli

WhatDoTheyKnow

United Kingdom

Alaveteli Pro

Alaveteli started life as WhatDoTheyKnow, a website produced by mySociety for making FOI requests in the UK.

Around 15% to 20% of requests to UK Central Government are made through WhatDoTheyKnow.com.

Ask the EU

Europe

Alaveteli Pro

AskTheEU doesn’t just cover one country: in theory, it serves over 500 million people: the whole of Europe.

AskTheEU processes requests for any of the European Union bodies, and the site is translated into several languages. It is run by Access Info Europe, in Madrid.

Info Pro Všechny

Czech Republic

Alaveteli Pro

Infoprovsechny gives citizens of the Czech Republic easy access to their rights under the country's 1999 Freedom of Information Act.

Giving access to nearly 12,000 public authorities, the site has been instrumental in several high-profile TV news stories. It was started in 2012 with a grant from the Open Society Foundation.

MaDada

France

Alaveteli Pro

France has had access to information since 1978, thanks to their Freedom of Information Act — but it wasn't until the launch of MaDada in 2020 that citizens were given a simple way to exercise this right.

The site is run by a group of dedicated volunteers, as well as members of OpenKnowledge France.

Handlingar

Sweden

Alaveteli Pro

Sweden is the country where offentlighetsprincipen, the Principle of Public Access — the first FOI legislation as we know it today — was born.

More than 250 years later, a group of volunteers are continuing to push the boundaries to information access, with Handlingar.

de Wob-Knop

Netherlands

Alaveteli Pro

It took just one enterprising journalist to set up and run de Wob-Knop — with valuable support from Vereniging van Onderzoeksjournalisten.

The underlying aim is to encourage more online FOI requesting in the Netherlands, using a request generator which will eventually link into the platform.
