IRM Refresh

In 2017, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) commissioned a review of its work by the consulting firm Blomeyer and Sanz. The report was based on interviews with more than 50 OGP stakeholders and a survey of more than 100 civil society and government actors familiar with the IRM. The final Review Report was published in 2018 here.  The IRM refresh process is aimed to address the findings in the IRM Review Report.

During the first months of 2019, we have conducted initial consultations with the IRM’s International Experts Panel (IEP), the IRM researchers, and a subset of IRM users.

Now we’re launching a survey to solicit feedback from the broader OGP community. Following OGP’s spirit that ideas come from everywhere, we are looking for contributions from all stakeholders interested in the IRM refresh process, regardless if you are familiar or not with the IRM.

The survey is available in three languages:

Participation in this survey is voluntary. Any personal information provided will not be made public, but the collective analysis of all responses may be published at the discretion of the Open Government Partnership. OGP collects and processes your personal information only with your consent, in accordance with OGP’s existing Privacy Policy and Terms of Use available here.
