The Frag den Staat (‘Ask The Government’) portal enables interested citizens to request information from a variety of public sector organisations by making a Freedom of Information (FOI) request. On the project’s website, the requests, their current status and the responses to them are transparently documented and published. Frag den Staat wants to empower citizens and hopes to generate further interest in FOI. FragDenStaat.de is inspired by the British FOI-portal What Do They Know and cooperates with other FOI portals around the world.
