Andreas Pavlou is a Right to Information Campaigner Researcher at Access Info Europe, after joining the civil society organisation in 2011. The focus of Andreas’ campaigning and research lies in improving access to information in law and practice throughout Europe, in line with Access Info’s strategic plan. A major area of his work deals with campaigning for greater access to information in law and practice in the European Union. Part of this work involves coordinating campaigns directed at the EU institutions, managing the AsktheEU.org request platform, as well as work with the ALTER-EU coalition in Brussels to increase transparency of lobbying in the EU. Andreas has also drafted and edited reports on transparency of EU institutions in practice via analyses of requests on AsktheEU.org. Campaigning also focuses on national level transparency, by helping to support campaigns in Spain, Cyprus, and elsewhere in Europe. Andreas has also been involved in a number of other areas of Access Info’s work including analysing and authoring reports on Access for Rights, Aid Transparency, Open Government Standards, and the Open Cyprus Project. Andreas holds a Master’s degree in Contemporary European Studies after studying in the UK, Czech Republic, and Spain, as well as a Bachelor’s degree in European Studies and Modern Languages from the University of Birmingham, UK.
