OGP can be a useful platform for governments to introduce and scale reforms to make their governments more open and accountable to the citizens they serve. In this panel we'll hear from five lead OGP Ministers representing different governments that have each used the OGP platform work with civil society to deliver needed reforms in the public administration.
There will not be any prepared speeches or interventions, but rather Ministers will be asked a series of questions by the moderator, who will encourage dialogue among the panelists. The objectives will be to:
- Reflect on how each government has addressed challenges related to enactment of ambitious open government reform.
- Discuss how governments have leveraged OGP to push for ambitious Open Government reform that contribute to build trust in governments.
- Inspire participants to utilize the OGP platform to push for ambitious reforms that foster more transparency, accountability and political participation.
The panel will be moderated by Zuzana Wienk, the Founder and Executive Director of Slovakia's Fair Play Alliance and a member of the OGP Steering Committee.
Ministers from OGP countries will discuss how their governments have stretched to become more open and transparent through the OGP process.
