Democracy Beyond the Ballot Box: OGP Global Report Highlights

Open Gov Hub

Join us Thursday, October 10th at the Open Gov Hub to discuss the latest OGP report, with topics including civic space, anti-corruption, and public services. Register here.

OGP released its first comprehensive assessment of the state of open government at the OGP Global Summit in Ottawa. The OGP Global Report provides a thorough and honest review of progress made by OGP members in the first eight years of the partnership.

The report examines a vast amount of the world’s governance data, across multiple dimensions of democracy and openness, specifically looking at three areas of progress and next steps:

  • Collective results: OGP countries’ progress based on aggregate indicators of openness.
  • Priority policy areas: OGP countries’ progress in three key areas: civic space, anti-corruption initiatives, and public service delivery.
  • Member pages: Stories of individual member countries’ progress across their OGP action plans and against key indicators of openness, as measured by third-party indicators.

Join us at the Open Gov Hub to discuss the many parts of the report, including overall findings and OGP member progress in the areas of civic space, anti-corruption, and public services. We’ll also discuss how to use member pages from the new report and bring together data users from government and civil society with the data producers from contributing organizations.
