Les Visages du Gouvernement Ouvert - Lancelot Pecquet

Comment vous-êtes vous impliqués dans le gouvernement ouvert? En quoi votre formation vous a-t-elle mené à travailler dans ce domaine?

J’ai commencé à travailler sur ce qui ne s’appelait pas encore le “gouvernement ouvert” en 2007. Cette année-là, la France avait un nouveau président et un nouveau gouvernement,  particulièrement préoccupés par les questions de sécurité et de défense. De plus, quelques mois plus tard, la France allait accéder à la Présidence du Conseil de l’Union Européenne.

Rostros del Gobierno Abierto - Lancelot Pecquet

¿Por qué estás interesado en el gobierno abierto? ¿Cómo es que tu experiencia te trajo hasta aquí?

Yo empecé a trabajar en lo que aún no se llamaba “gobierno abierto” en el 2007. Ese año, Francia tuvo un nuevo presidente y un nuevo gobierno que tenían especial interés en la seguridad y la defensa. Unos meses después, Francia ocupó la presidencia del Consejo de la Unión Europea.

How did you get involved in open government? What in your background inspired you to work in this field?

I started to work on what was not yet called “open government” in 2007. That year, France had a new president and a new government who were particularly concerned about security and defense. In addition, a few months ahead, France was about to take the Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

¿Por qué estás interesada en el gobierno abierto? ¿Cómo es que tu experiencia te trajo hasta aquí?

El gobierno abierto es una forma de consolidar y mejorar la democracia. Como periodista veo, además, cómo la corrupción ha puesto en jaque a países como el mío. Por eso es importante la transparencia y la participación ciudadana.

What got you personally involved in open government? What in your background inspired you to work in this field?

Open governments are a way to strengthen and improve democracy. Besides, as a journalist, I have witnessed how corruption has undermined many countries, including mine. Thus the need for transparency and citizen participation.

Faces of Open Government: Fabiano Angelico

What got you personally involved in open government? What in your background inspired you to work in this field?

I come from a quite poor family, so I could see poverty very closely, with my very eyes. And my parents were political, so I could, from my early years, understand the role of politics in our everyday lives and the impact of political decisions in issues such as inequality. Because of all that, since my childhood I have thought of working with something that could make politics better, and when I started researching on government transparency around a decade ago, I found what I was looking for. I believe open government is a good opportunity for making politics and policies better, because it promotes the inescapable dialogue between government and governed, highlighting the reformers and the good practices.
