Civic Tech: the New Tool for Democracy
Innovation is one of the principles of open government. Technology has a great potential to transform civic participation and therefore the way we currently understand democracy. The current incorporation of technology in citizens’ daily lives has made governments question the way they interact with and reach out to their constituents. Governments are now moving towards improved, more efficient, and citizen-centered manners to implement technology improving their performance and responsiveness. As new digital technology becomes more accessible, and organizations like the Open Government Partnership push for the adoption of it to improve governance, governments begin to explore new ways to incorporate it in their policies and processes. This context allows for a new opportunity in which citizens, companies and academia are more heavily involved, providing tools, expertise, and ideas, moving, through civic technology, towards building more open governments.

What kinds of social and economic transformation has open data brought about and what is its future potential? How—and under what circumstances—has it been most effective? How have open data practitioners mitigated risks (for instance, to privacy) and maximized social good? How does impact differ across societies?

The goal of the session is to identify concrete actions for a more active involvement in OGP of the European Union and the Member States.

The discussion will aim at finding answers on three major topics:

  • institutional involvement of EU in OGP
  • better coordination between Member States
  • using OGP to support the accessing plans of the candidate and Eastern Partnership countries

After a short keynote laying out the current status of OGP in Europe, this session will proceed with the audience divided into three smaller groups to discuss practical solutions to key issues. Facilitators will use the most important resulting proposals to formulate a call to action addressed to EU institutions and member states.

Earlier in 2015, the global civil society addressed an open letter to the European Parliament, calling on the Members of EP to encourage EU to sign the Open Government Partnership. You may read the letter here: http://www.access-info.org/wp-content/uploads/DraftletteronOGPforMEPs.pdf

Even though public sector innovation has become an international trend, in the stricter sense we know that there is still much to learn on the subject. This session will address the contributing factors in promoting innovation as well as the necessary conditions that are key to ensure that good ideas are put into practice and can endure. This will be done by discussing the characteristics, achievements and limitations of three different initiatives that have been developed to promote public sector innovation in the Latinamerican region. By zooming in on problem definition, innovation development and adoption in these three initiatives, the session will attempt to delve into what ingredients can yield effective and durable innovation in the public sector.

Open Cities, States and Regions: The Promise of Open Government in the Subnational Level
Transparency, accountability, civic participation and innovation are cross-cutting principles that should be present in all sectors and across all levels of government. Mexico’s main goal as chair of OGP is to deepen the impact of the principles of open government at the subnational level in order to promote a more efficient and responsive government. Furthermore, as the role of local governments is central in achieving public participation, it is necessary to share best practices amongst local governments that have been pioneers and are currently leading open government efforts. It is also within these levels of government that the linkage between authorities and civil society becomes most apparent, ensuring that open government reaches as many citizens as possible.

Regulation and Transparency of Lobbying: International Standards for the OGP Community
Love it or hate it, lobbying happens – civil society also does it and many government officials are a target. We are concerned about it because we know that lobbying impacts on decision-making in key areas of democratic life – take public health, energy, extractive industries, food security, and environment for a start! So what should we do about it? How should OGP countries regulate lobbying? What are the limits? What about questions of privacy and protection of commercial interests? How do we make decision making transparent and participatory without opening it up to wild lobbying pressures?
This panel includes the formal launch of the International Lobby Regulation Standards, which provide government and civil society alike with a framework for ensuring that the activities of lobbyists are both properly regulated and made full transparent. The International Lobby Regulation Standards have been drawn up following review of legislation worldwide and consultation with civil society, government and lobbyists themselves. As well as giving guidance to governments, the standards can also be used by civil society for benchmarking existing or draft laws and practices. Come and join the debate on lobby regulation! The session will provide a space to discuss practical steps that government and civil society can jointly take to advance transparency and integrity of lobbying activities

México es uno de los ocho países fundadores de la para Open Government Partnership 
(OGP). Como pionera, la experiencia de la Alianza para el Gobierno Abierto 1(AGA) en 
México tuvo simultáneamente el reto y la oportunidad de definir un modelo propio de 
funcionamiento. Esta experiencia permitió explorar y experimentar con distintas formas 
de organización vinculación que definieron una nueva relación entre sociedad civil y 
gobierno. Este libro recupera la experiencia mexicana  desde la perspectiva de ocho 
organizaciones de la sociedad civil y tuvo como fuentes una revisión documental, 
entrevistas a profundidad e investigación electrónica complementaria para el cotejo de 
aspectos  puntuales recabados en los testimoniales.

The Open Mapping Revolution and What It Means for Government
Open mapping data commons like OpenStreetMap and OpenAddresses fundamentally change how we create and share geospatial data. Communities are building geospatial dataset of immense value, all in the open. This democratizes data production, spurs innovation, stimulates economic growth, and transforms how government and citizens work together. Open mapping takes on traditional government functions - so what does this mean for government? Our session will delve into how governments have creatively engaged with open data communities to build better data, more efficiently, in true collaboration. And with the entire audience, we will explore emerging opportunities for open mapping in even more open governments and the Global Goals.

Conflicting priorities in Open Data Practices. Is the Right to Information threatening the Right to Privacy?
This session intends to gather privacy experts, open data practitioners and FOI advocates to explore the privacy concerns that have emerged across the global community of open data practice. Big data technologies bring powerful utility to open data practice, but they also bring new privacy and security implications for citizens. These concerns should not be left unaddressed. To ensure the sustainability of Open Government endeavours, we need to find ways to integrate the right to privacy into our policies and practices. At the same time, data protection is often cited as the reason for reluctance towards genuine Open Government approaches. Conversely, a careful process to define standards for privacy protections in public sector data management and frameworks that help us balance the Right to Information and the Right to Privacy could add strong support to the broader Open Government agenda.

We would like to stimulate a clarifying and instructive debate with experts from the Open Government and the Privacy field. We will address the relationship between Right to Information and Privacy, speak about experiences with privacy assessments on the governmental level, and present global perspectives on privacy, such as data privacy-conscious Germany, to identify concerns and possible solutions.

UNWomen will talk about the experience they have had in Mexico; Inmujeres will talk about successful efforts and obstacles, while GIRE will discuss about its experience on access to public information related to reproductive rights. Data 4 will show the ways in which information should be systematized so that it can be useful.

Corporate Vehicles on the Road to Transparency: Where Next for Beneficial Ownership?
Publicly accessible information on beneficial ownership is one of the most important developments in the open government agenda to date. Understanding who controls or benefits from companies is a step change in corporate transparency and fundamental to the fight against corruption. Hundreds of billions of dollars are lost to corruption in public procurement every year. This can lead to lower quality infrastructure and services, wasted tax money and decreased trust in government. Corporate vehicles, such as companies, trusts, foundations and partnerships
play a legitimate and important role in our global economy. But they can also be used to disguise the real owners of companies, making it hard for citizens and governments to “follow the money.” Transparency, open data and access to information - key tenets of open government - are essential to tackling this issue, and beneficial ownership registries can help drive a transparency revolution.

Good Governance in Sport
Sport is a multi-billion dollar business and a source of joy for many people around the world, whether participating, attending or watching events. Sports' intricate ties to political and private interests means corruption remains a real and constant risk. The recent corruption scandals at FIFA have highlighted weaknesses in sports governance that undermine public trust. Keeping sports clean is therefore a global imperative.This session will look at such issues as how governance principles can drive a more open and accountable contracting and sponsorship process, and the role that those inside and outside the ‘sport’s family’ can play in making sport a force for good. Participants will look at the full range of open government tools and discuss how these can strengthen transparency in sports.

To what Extent is Open Data Contributing to Open Government in Asia and Africa?
A critical stock take of the state of open data contributing to open government in Asia and Africa, building on the Web Foundation's 17 country study as well as current phase of research focusing on Asia and Africa. We ask - first, what have we learned of state of open data in Asia and Africa (a broad question but one we will ask based on the Open Data Barometer as well as other studies), and second, to what extent does this contribute to open government? What are the challenges and recommendations? There is an assumption that a) open data is good and b) open data contributes to open government. We want to explore both assumptions and the links between them. This will be a critical piece on the benefits and challenges of open data contributing to open government. Which countries might be leaders in this, which might be stragglers?

Learning from OGP Research - How Well is the OGP Working in Countries?
The objective of the session is learning from preliminary findings from 18 country case studies on how the OGP platform is being used to promote transparent, accountable and responsive governments. Part one should distill key observations from the country cases to come to an understanding of how well the OGP model is working in different contexts. The audience should come away with a good understanding of the cross-cutting findings emerging from these cases and the discussion should induce them to read further on the individual country cases. This will be a panel discussion with one researcher representing each of the above organizations, paired with a dynamic facilitator. The idea is to host a talk-show/debate style discussion where the facilitator poses challenging questions on the OGP model and for researchers to have an honest exchange on their findings. Part two will be a Q&A session from the audience. The goal is to do a targeted invite of key government officials, civil society members, academics, researchers, and journalists who are closely involved in OGP. In Part three, each organization displays a poster, showcasing key findings at the country level. These posters will have short, interesting snippets as answers which piques the audience’s interest. The audience is invited to walk around the room and learn more about specific countries that interest them from the researcher.

Opening Elections: From Transparency to Accountability
The session will be organized as hybrid between a panel discussion and town hall meeting. The first part will be a panel featuring a structured discussion (with specific moderator questions) among the key discussants (NDI, Google, South Africa's election commission (IEC), Mexico's National Electoral Institute (INE) and a citizen election observation leader), with NDI’s representative moderating. The last portion would open up into a town hall discussion, in which the participants would pose questions, share relevant experience, and provide recommendations on ways to advance open election data principles.

Smart Governments: Planning and Delivering next Generation Public Service
The discussion will address the process of “unlocking data” for the benefit of both government and citizens, how resource strapped governments can reach out to citizens, with examples from Sri Lanka's post-conflict case and the challenge of managing supply-side engagement, including the need for a politically-informed approach, with an example from Ulaanbaatar.

Taking OGP Subnational
Since its launch, the OGP has achieved a rapid expansion in its breadth - from the 8 founding countries to its 65 members today - and has had considerable success in being a catalyst for open government reforms in national level governments. The next frontier for OGP is to deepen, by increasing the involvement of sub-national tiers of government. This session will explore past, present and future innovations in applying open government and the OGP at a devolved, federal or local level. The session will begin with lightning talks from four people leading innovations on subnational open government.

Strengthening Civil Society: Moving from Paper to Action International
The Open Governance Guide has a new draft chapter—developed with the help of the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law—that is focused on protecting and promoting civil society, with illustrative commitments and recommendations. Adoption of such commitments can lead to a stronger civil society that can more effectively collaborate with government, including on implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and better support the work of the OGP. The session aims to explore how stakeholders can most effectively promote the adoption and implementation of commitments in support of civil society.

Access to Information as a Critical Link to Fulfilling National OGP Commitments
Access to information (ATI) is a fundamental right and a critical element for participation, voice, and accountability. It is crucial in addressing the most pressing social needs, solving public problems, improving the effectiveness of government institutions, and allowing citizens to help set priorities and monitor government action. Increasing transparency and access to information is at the core of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) values and principles; and passage of ATI legislation is included as one of the four main eligibility criteria for joining the OGP. While many OGP countries have developed national actions plans which include a series of commitments related to areas such as improved service delivery, fiscal transparency, asset disclosure, e-government, infrastructure, improved public service, in some cases, the country national action plans do not include specific commitments for continued advancement of the right of access to information or the ATI obligations that have been made are not effectively connected to other OGP commitments.

The promotion for OGP Implementation in Difficult Contexts
Over the last few years, the climate for civil society in some member state of OGP has deteriorated to the point where it seriously threatens the ability of civil society organizations (CSOs) to engage effectively in the OGP process. Crackdown on independent civil society has had profound negative effects on the ability of NGOs and citizen activists to promote open government. As a result of such pressure, sizable number of independent NGOs working on open government issues have had to suspend their activities. Conditions in this countries seriously threaten the integrity of OGP and raise important concerns about the government’s commitment to the Open Government Declaration.

The Data Revolution will be Open
The 2030 Agenda will set the course towards a better and more inclusive world for the next fifteen years. Open Governments will be fundamental in helping achieve trustworthy, effective, and inclusive institutions that engage with civil society and leverage data to monitor and deliver sustainable development goals at a global scale. In this context, the global community has worked to develop the international Open Data Charter that sets the founding principles for a greater coherence and increased use of open data across the world. The Open Data Charter recognizes the value of having timely, comprehensive, accessible and comparable open data by default, that can help improve governance and citizen engagement, as well as foster inclusive development and innovation, in support of the Global Goals. In this scenario, this plenary will showcase various countries, cities and international organizations that will adopt and endorse the Charter as a mechanism to enable sustainable development through the accessibility and use of open data.
