About Our Work
The Learning to Open Government project is a first of its kind examination of how the Open Government Partnership (OGP) has played out in practice in different contexts across the world.
Beginning in April 2015, we worked with local open government experts to produce five exhaustively researched case studies on the OGP experiences of five countries: Albania, Costa Rica, Mexico, the Philippines, and Tanzania. These case studies dig into the ways in which pro-reform actors are able to leverage the resources, processes, and spaces provided by OGP in order to pursue improved government responsiveness and accountability in their countries. Each country case explores the country’s open government journey, unpacks OGP’s location in the broader open government landscape at country level, and uses interviews, document reviews, and other evidence sources to analyze whether and how pro-reform actors are engaging with OGP in specific political contexts.
We also produced a synthesis paper reviewing the case studies, and generating lessons and reflections to inform the future of OGP, as well as a shorter brief. In addition to these outputs, as of April 2016, we working with open government reformers in Costa Rica and Tanzania, and supporting their efforts to put the research to use in ways that matter in their contexts.
