Event description

Description

The Open Government Partnership ​(OGP) ​was established under the leadership of​ President​ Obama in 2011 as an international network of countries committed to making their governments more open, transparent, accountable and responsive to citizens. ​In this framework, numerous steps were taken by the previous administration to advance open data, access to information, transparency, and citizen participation in US federal government (most notably through the US OGP National Action Plans). ​


Now, as data sets and other information sources have already begun to disappear under the new administration, how might American activists and organizations leverage the Open Government Partnership ​- and other international mechanisms that the US participates in - ​to preserve domestic open government reforms that may soon come under threat?


In light of Sunshine Week 2017, the OpenGov Hub is convening this timely brown bag discussion. ​


This event will feature brief remarks from Nathaniel Heller ​(Executive Vice President for Integrated Strategies at​Results for Development and OGP Steering Committee Member),​ and Sean Moulton ​(Open Government Program Manager at​ the Project on Government Oversight​).​
