The global outlook for open government, once seen as on an almost inevitable positive trajectory, is now less optimistic. Since 2011, we’ve seen democratic backsliding across the globe: V-Dem assesses that 70% of the world’s population now live in autocracies. OGP member countries are not immune to this trend either. Citizens in only six out of 77 current OGP countries enjoy increased civil liberties as compared to a decade ago.

How have we found ourselves here? For open government to fulfill its once-hopeful promise, what reassessment of our theory of change, approaches, and activities are needed? And with the ongoing strategy refresh process in mind, what role does OGP play?

This community dialogue provides the opportunity to have an open, frank, and provocative conversation about the thorniest of questions. The session is kicked off by a fireside chat in plenary, after which we will move to facilitated small table discussions. Conversations will be facilitated by members of the OGP Steering Committee, Italian MSF, and OGP staff.
