Open Government: A Means to What End?

10:30 - 11:50
Room 202, Shaw Centre

"This session will explore the way in which governments are organising themselves to design and implement open government related reforms, how these reforms are steered to maximise their effect such as increasing citizens’ trust. Open government leaders from Canada, New Zealand and Mexico will share their respective approaches to linking evidence with policy design and evaluation. Questions to be discussed during this panel include:
  1. What are the expected positive changes in public policies and services generated by open government strategies and initiatives? What kind of indicators can be used to measure the impact of these reforms?
  2. What kind of governance mechanisms can make open government reforms more impactful and produce benefits for the society?
  3. How to improve the use of data and evidence for monitoring, evaluating and learning from the implementation of open government initiatives? "
