Malta End-of-Term Report 2015-2017 - For Public Comment

Report Comments

In 2018, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Year 2 End of Term Report for Malta's second action plan. The report covers the implementation of the action plan from July 2016 through June 2017.

In Malta, findings from the IRM researcher, Dr. Neil Falzon, are summarized below:

"Malta’s second action plan contained five commitments focusing on processes in the public sector including trainings, e-services, and publication of information. Three commitments were not clearly relevant to OGP values and one led to marginal improvements in opening government. The next action plan needs to include more specific, ambitious actions that advance openness and public participation. The government needs to improve the engagement of civil society to strengthen the formulation and monitoring of the action plan."
