About us Who we are?

K-Monitor is an anti-corruption grass root NGO founded in 2007 based in Budapest, Hungary. We strive against corruption and promotes the transparency of public spending in the country. We operate open data websites, conduct research and advocate for reform both on the national and local level.  With our researches, analyses and recommendations, we aim to challenge and overcome the social indifference to corruption, to raise awareness and encourage participation. We truly believe that information technology can contribute to a more open, more transparent and more democratic way of governing. Therefore our databases and online tools are developed to make public expenses trackable, and decision makers more accountable.

Principles of our operation are openness, independence and a critical approach.
