Objective

The Open Government movement seeks to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. This comprises minimum standards for access to information, fiscal transparency, asset disclosure and civil liberties.

The workshop highlights the potential of Open Government for better governments and more satisfied citizens and explores how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can help in curtailing corruption. The limits and potential downsides of open government will also be addressed. Following a general introduction on the underlying principles of open government and the prospects of web-based applications by an expert from Transparency International (TI), focus groups will allow to deepen exchange on:

Citizen-oriented ICT tools to support anti-corruption

First and foremost, participants themselves are invited to actively share their knowledge, experiences and opinions in a peer-to-peer exchange with the ultimate goal to improve GIZ services. In each group, expert colleagues from GIZ will also provide their valuable first-hand expertise: Shalva Papuashvili from Georgia, Katrin Schäfer from Armenia, Mathias Mühle from Indonesia, and Elvis Mujanovic from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
