In the draft resolution, after paragraph 8.4.2, insert the following paragraph:

"as regards legislation and public policy at national level:

introduce as law in Council of Europe member States where this has not already been done, the so-called "offentlighetsprincip" (used, for instance, in Scandinavian countries), the principle of public access to all official, non-secret documents kept by a State or other public authority, and public access to court proceedings and political meetings, on the grounds that it has proven to be an efficient means of exposing corruption and related crimes, and thereby also instilling confidence in society among the younger generation."
