Do we practice what we preach?
During the OGP Summit May 2019 Steering Committee member and current PhD Researcher, Lucy McTernan, (University of York, UK) will be observing proceedings to collect data for a project examining the ways that Global Civil Society and Inter-Governmental Organisations relate, including in the context of Summit events.
Against the background of a much-enhanced role for civil society at the global level in recent years, the project seeks to assess the Open Government Partnership platform and model as an exemplar of partnership working and co-operative behaviours. The frame for the enquiry is Sustainable Development Goal 16 which aims to promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies, and specifically SDG targets 16.6 and 16.7.
