RTBF and Access to Justice
This workshop will examine the pros and cons of the right to be forgotten (RTBF) in a legal context. Countries' experiences will test the hypothesis that the availability of a judgements database improves the accountability, predictability, economy, and integrity of the judicial system. However, the courts' inability to build such judgements databases is directly related to parties' RTBF or related privacy claims.

Enabling the Data Revolution: An International Open Data Roadmap
More than 1000 participants from 56 different countries took part in the 3rd International Open Data Conference (IODC) in Ottawa from May 28-29, 2015 to understand the global impact of open data, coordinate action, and share best practices.

We will also look ahead to regional collaborations such as Condatos and the African Open Data Conference as opportunities to focus on the needs of the international community in order to make the most of open data in the context of OGP and sustainable development in their own regions and organisations.
