Exploring the Open Government Partnership

This session will offer an introduction to and reflection on the Open Government Partnership. In a 2 hour conversation with key government and civil society open government reformers – many of them OGP champions from the early days - it will take stock of where we are after 4 years and use those insights to sketch the challenges and opportunities for the next four years.

Leading questions to guide reflection include: What does the global OGP report card look like? What have been the core challenges to tackle? When is a platform like OGP the right tool and when not? Have governments really opened up policy making? How do we get more complex topics into the Action Plans? Are citizens already seeing a difference in their lives? Are there patterns of success (or failure) that are starting to emerge?

Leading questions for looking ahead include: What are the global trends ahead that we need to take into account? How can we counter the threat of closing civic space? How do we spread the virus of openness – how do we get more ministries, more civil servants and more politicians engaged? How about judiciary? Parliaments? Local government? Cities? How do we get more politically challenging topics into the Action Plans?

In summary: an open and energetic conversation both among panelists and with audience on where we are and where we can head with OGP and with open government reform across the globe.
