Open Government Partnership

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a multilateral initiative, launched in 2011, with the aim to support public policies that encourage participation and transparency to fight corruption and promote the use of technologies by governments, with the collaboration of civil society. The OGP's program envisaged that governments deliver a country action plan developed through public consultation and commit to independent reporting on their progress going forward. 

Italy has joined the OGP from the beginning and it has so far achieved three action plans. The Global Shapers from Rome Hub helped draft the third action plan (2016-2018) and supported with the implementation and monitoring of its deployment. The process was divided into three working groups: open data and transparency, participation and accountability, digital citizenship and innovation.
