GCCN Submission to the Open Government Partnership consultation

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is an initiative of 70 countries. It aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. It is run by a steering committee composed of governments and civil society organisations. As part of this international initiative, every two years, Ireland makes commitments to make the State ever more transparent, ever more accountable and ever more inclusive in how it reaches decisions.  Ireland is currently developing its second National Action Plan that will include commitments and actions to achieve three central aims:

  • Increased Citizen Engagement
  • Increased Transparency and Open Data
  • Strengthened Governance and Accountability
