As a continuation of the OGP Dialogue series with members of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) Steering Committee, we invite you to join us for a discussion with Manish Bapna, lead civil society co-chair, Mukelani Dimba, incoming civil society co-chair, and Dr. Robin Hodess, member of the civil society Steering Committee.  This webinar aims to collect inputs from the OGP community ahead of the Steering Committee Working Level meeting at the UN General Assembly on September 20th.

We warmly encourage you to send your comments and questions via Twitter using the hashtag #OGPcivilsociety.

The Steering Committee meeting agenda will be finalised in the coming weeks and will aim to cover the following:

  • Changes to OGP’s “rules of the game” governing participation in the Partnership and upholding the values and principles of OGP. This segment covers eligibility criteria and protocols; steering committee eligibility; procedural review protocols; and a proposed cap on the number of commitments per action plan;
  • Updates from the Steering Committee, including on the OGP Trust Fund and the Steering Committee leadership;
  • Thematic Leadership Subcommittee progress update, including a revised peer exchange model, and presentation of options for OGP’s flagship ‘State of Open Government Report’ publication.
