Seoul Final IRM Review 2017 – For Public Comment
In 2019, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published its assessment report for Seoul’s first action plan, prepared by the independent researcher Chenie Yoon, in collaboration with the IRM. It covers the full action plan implementation period of January 2017 through December 2017.
The IRM findings are summarized as follows:
Seoul’s action plan focused on leveraging technology to improve access to information through data disclosure and civic participation. With high-level political support, the Seoul Metropolitan Government completed most of the commitment milestones. However, future action plans could maximize the diversity of CSO to include more ambitious anti-corruption reforms.
The version of the report for public comment is available below. The public is invited to comment on the report here. The two-week public comment period closed 14 February 2019.
