Business (re)certification

While issues of energy independence have the dominant political focus, we would like to consider the role that fiscal transparency could play in the longer-term repairing of ties. This project is to discuss a certification for companies, based on open budgets, company registries linked to sanctions data, or suggesting other relevant data commitments, that may lead to peaceful economic relations. Our focus is in particular on small/medium-sized companies that need instruments to preserve or rebuild relations with their foreign partners after their contracts have been ruptured by official or self-imposed sanctions.


“We justify our conduct; we judge the conduct of others.”—Michael Walzer, Just and Unjust Wars. Track the costs, impacts and consequences of sanctions as an economic and political response to aggression.

All attendees, sponsors, partners, volunteers and staff at our hackathon are required to agree with the Hack Code of Conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to ensure a safe environment for everybody.
