An API for European Union legislation
The API can help you conduct research, create data visualizations or you can even build applications upon it.
This is an application programming interface (API) that opens up core EU legislative data for further use. The interface uses JSON, meaning that you have easy to use machine-readable access to meta data on European Union legislation. It will be useful if you want to use or analyze European Union legislative data in a way that the official databases are not originally build for. The API extracts, organize and connects data from various official sources.
Among other things we have used the data to conduct research on the decision-making time*
, analyze voting patterns*
, measure the activity of Commissioners*
and visualize the legislative integration process over time*
, but you can use the API as you want to. When you use it to create something useful or interesting be sure to let us know, if you want to we can post a link to your project from this site.
