The aim of the International Transparency and Secrecy Research Network is to keep participants up-to-date with new publications and research on transparency and secrecy, and to foster dialogue and collaboration in the field of transparency broadly defined. Through participation via a Listserv, this network facilitates online discussions of current research topics, flag new reports and articles, publicize work, and ease future cooperation among participants.

- The Global Conference on Transparency Research (GCTR) is the preeminent conference bringing together leading scholars from throughout the world to collectively advance our understanding of the impact and implications of transparency policies that involve governments, either directly or indirectly. The GCTR involves scholars from a wide range of fields including sociology, anthropology, political science, public administration, economics, political economy, journalism, communication sciences, business, history, philosophy, and law who study issues of governmental transparency.
The GCTR Standing Executive Committee is currently requesting proposals to host the 5th Global Conference on Transparency Research sometime in 2017. Download the 5th Global Conference on Transparency Research Site Selection RFP.
