    The first part [of the present paper] seeks to put the openness debate in context, by examining the different facets of openness and transparency, the important roles of European Parliament, the Ombudsman, the European Court of Justice and citizens groups in helping to promote greater openness, as well as the differing approaches to openness and transparency within Member States. The second part of the paper outlines the progressive extension of openness and transparency within EU in recent years, including the development of a formal Treaty base and the evolving situation within the various EU institutions and bodies, notably the establishment of new codes of conduct on public access to their documents. The final section of the paper reviews the present state of openness and transparency within EU, and the areas where insufficient progress has been made. In particular, it reviews the recent debate on the implementing rules on public access to the documents of the Parliament, Commission and Council, and the various issues that have arisen in the course of this debate.
