Event description

Description

New approaches to open government, freedom of information, and social accountability are revitalizing the field of government transparency. But do these approaches satisfy citizens, or sow seeds of discontent? Do they create measureable impact? Have they had unintentional consequence of “closing space” for civil society?

Please join us to hear practitioners discuss these initiatives’ promise and implementation lessons from the field. Light refreshments will be served.

The hour-long event is the first in a series called Innovations in Governance: from Integration to Politics. This practitioner seminar series will explore how new technology, approaches and global initiatives shape the landscape of good governance, with significant implications for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
