Open Government: Getting It Right

Keitha Booth
Open Government Partnership's
Independent Researcher

The Institute for Governance and Policy Studies at Victoria University in Wellington is hosting an Open Government Partnership (OGP) presentation on 27 September 2019 (revised date).

OGP plans 

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is an international initiative of about 100 country members. It brings together government reformers and civil society leaders to create action plans that commit governments to be more inclusive, responsive and accountable to the public. New Zealand joined in 2013 and since, has prepared three National Action Plans. The OGP’s Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) assesses development and implementation of country plans to foster dialogue among stakeholders and improve accountability.  Four earlier reports have been released about New Zealand’s plans.

Keitha Booth, New Zealand’s IRM Independent Researcher, will launch her latest report. This reviews the design of New Zealand’s third OGP National Action Plan (2018-2020). She will outline what New Zealand’s OGP membership has achieved over the last six years, the OGP’s expectations for national action plans, and how much the New Zealand government has worked with the public for plan preparations.

She will also comment on the 12 new commitments in the current plan, and announce her recommendations to government for a bolder 2020-2022 National Action Plan that would commit to addressing long-standing, open government concerns.

New date: 27 September
Time: 12.30 pm – 1.30 pm
Venue: Old Government Building, lecture theatre 3, 55 Lambton Quay, Wellington
