MICI has launched a new open data portal with the historical information of all the cases presented to the Mechanism since its creation in 2010. The new data repository facilitates investigations and analysis of the complaints received, the alleged harm, the types of complaints, and MICI's process management, among others. The Open Data format allows historical data to be explored with multiple searches, filters and visualizations, and the information can be downloaded for analysis using statistical software and spreadsheets.
With this new initiative, MICI wants to provide any interested party with information on the complaints and contribute to greater transparency of the Mechanism, and it becomes the first accountability mechanism that embraces the open data standard. The new AccountabilityData site, which will be regularly updated, is currently in Beta stage to receive comments and suggestions from interested audiences.
