Integrating data about political actors is an essential step in making an open source due diligence database. However, it is a much more intricate task than collecting sanctions lists (of which there are only a few dozen), and fully addressing it will be the focus of a later stage of this project.

At present, OpenSanctions relies mainly on the efforts of the now-defunct EveryPolitician project to include law makers from many countries.
