United States End-of-Term Report 2013-2015
In 2017, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the end of term report for the US second national action plan. The report covers the full action plan implementation period of 2014 through 2015.
Suzanne Piotrowski of Rutgers University, the IRM researcher for the US, summarizes her report findings below:
“Some commitments in the US second action plan contributed to major changes in government practice through crowdsourcing, online participation, and disclosure of information on extractives and intelligence. While many commitments did not show progress after the midterm, the third action plan carries forward these efforts and includes other priority areas such as law enforcement, sustainable development, and subnational governance.”
The final report is available below. The two-week public comment period closed on 26 January 2017.
