Open format data publishing – A practice that is yet to gain traction in Montenegro

Montenegro’s obligation to publish open data, i.e. data in a format that facilitates its reuse, is stipulated by the Law on Free Access to Information.

Publishing data in an open format is particularly important for its reuse, allowing for analysis and digital processing.

The aim of this analysis is to provide an overview of the current situation in terms of open data, and to scrutinise the latest PAR monitoring cycle in the Western Balkans region, the results of which were published in 2025, to illustrate the extent to which public institutions in Montenegro publish data in an open format in relation to each area of public administration reform (PAR), and to show how Montenegro ranks in relation to countries in the region in terms of the publication of these data.
