JeDEM Special Issue on Progress, Insights, and Implications of the Open Government Partnership

 

Scholars and practitioners with expertise and experience in the area of open government are invited to submit a paper for an upcoming special issue of the Journal of e-Democracy and Open Government (JeDEM) focused on “Progress, Insights, and Implications of the Open Government Partnership.”

In 2016, the Open Government Partnership (OGP) celebrated its five-year anniversary. In those five years, governments have committed to over 2000 reforms aimed at improving transparency, accountability, and citizen participation. Much has changed in five years. Membership in the OGP has grown from 8 to 75 national level governments. While many new members have joined, there have also been departures: Hungary being the most recent.  Currently, there is a pilot including 15 subnational governments designed to more proactively involve subnational governments in the initiative.

This special issue of JeDEM is dedicated to fostering a better understanding the progress made within the OGP over the past five years. It contributes to the scholarly and professional discourse about the implications and the insights gathered, thus far, on the future of the OGP and its members.
