National Action Plan Review - how does civil society rate the process of the last batch of Action Plans
IRM data - what do the latest reports say about the P of OGP and how is the trend
Civil Society Survey - is OGP making a difference for Civil Society according to the Summit Participants and how is the trend
From informing to empowering: Best practices and recommendations for improving government-civil society within the OGP
Permanent Dialogue Mechanisms - what’s out there, what’s working
Global indices on public participation including the Open Government Index (World Justice Project)
For the first time ever, the civil society members of the OGP Steering Committee will present an award to an OGP government, the inaugural OGP Government Champions Award. The award is being presented to the government they feel has been most proactive in embracing true co-creation with civil society counterparts. Three semi-finalists, all nominated by civil society partners in those OGP countries, are competing for public votes in the run-up to the Global Summit. This session will have the three nominating CSOs explain why they feel their governments are going "above and beyond the call of [OGP] duty," and offer participants a final chance to vote for their preferred winning government. The winner be then be announced later in the morning.
Group 1 (EN) and Group 2 (SP) Bringing Access to Justice to the heart of OGP
Participants in this group will discuss how the Open Government Partnership can better address access to justice issues. These domains are currently under-represented in OGP Action Plans, yet are urgent priorities for many citizens, and would potentially make OGP relevant to a broader group of civil society actors. If you work in topics such as accountability, impunity, marginalized communities, security, human rights we would like to hear your ideas about linking these topics to National Action Plans. Are there ways for OGP to support more countries to commit to ambitious commitments in this area? Who could be champion countries and/or civil society actors to lead on this?
Group 3 (EN) and Group 4 (SP) Caucusing for ambition: strengthening national and cross-country networks on Open Government
This group will discuss how national and cross-regional collaboration can strengthen civil society’s advocacy efforts around open government. In some of the participating countries we are starting to see smart, coordinated civil society strategizing to get big priority commitments delivered. For example UK civil society got a breakthrough on beneficial ownership. We’ve also heard from you that global coordinated advocacy - using both OGP and other international platforms - could help advance thorny issues and/or raise the bar on issues. This advanced way of caucusing is a relatively underexplored opportunity. What is needed to use both these national and global opportunities? Join to discuss this and other ideas!
Group 5 (EN) and Group 6 (SP) How have you done it? Peer-Learning to get better national OGP Processes
One of OGP’ strengths is the many opportunities for peer learning - whether at events, through webinars or by peer exchange. Participants in this group will share experiences regarding civil society’s role in the development of Action Plans, creation of local Steering Committees monitoring and evaluation of progress etcetera. If you were successful in getting coordinated amongst each other as civil society, developed a shadow Action Plan to lead advocacy, created a solid permanent dialogue mechanism, play a successful role in implementation or used the Independent Progress Report smartly to get a better next plan than this is the session for you to share your tips & tricks, pitfalls and challenges ahead!
Group 7 (EN) and Group 8 (SP) What does the research tell us? - Exploring the Present and Future Open Government Research
Advocacy, spin, promises and planned commitments are all part of the open government game. But to know if OGP is really making a difference we need to distinguish fact from fiction. After 4 years there is a lot of material on how is OGP doing, from case studies to dozens of Independent Progress Report to academic papers. Participants in this group will be introduced to the wealth of material available by now and based on that have a conversation about the latest research findings related to open government. If you are interested in research or have engaged in any related projects join us to share your findings and help us think about additional research that is needed in the field!
Group 9 (EN) and Group 10 (SP) What can the SC do for you? A conversation with the incoming SC co-chairs
Join our new civil society chairs to reflect on the Steering Committee roles, responsibilities and expectations. They will share their ideas for the coming years and answer all questions you might have. What issues should OGP prioritize? What are their ideas for improving the OGP process? How can the Steering Committee help national processes that are stuck? How can you become a Steering Committee member? What is working in OGP for you - and what not? This is a great opportunity to share success stories or challenges with the OGP Steering Committee and help shape priorities moving forward.
Group 11 (EN) and Group 12 (SP) Sourcing international support for Civil Society’s Local OGP Advocacy Efforts
“We need more resources to be able to ‘do OGP’” is something we hear a lot, especially now that civil society support is becoming more difficult to source in many regions across the world. Different stakeholders (multilaterals, funders, OGP Working Groups, etcetera) have successfully supported CSOs working on OGP at the national level. Participants in this group will hear various examples and smart advice. If you have a story to share or have detected opportunities, then help us shape this discussion!
Group 13 (EN) and Group 14 (SP) Engaging New Actors in the Open Government Game
Broadening the base of open government champions at the national level is one of the best ways to make the change we are pushing for a change at scale and one that sticks. In some OGP countries we have successfully expanded the range of actors who are involved – whether parliaments, private sector, or new networks of civil society actors. In this session we will showcase success stories in which a diverse array of actors have supported open government efforts at the national level and discuss what new groups we should particularly target. What should our engagement be with the private sector? How can we more deeply engage the human rights and development communities in the push for SDG-related commitments? What is the role of religious groups or informal leaders at the community level? Share your experience broadening engagement beyond the usual suspects and contribute your ideas on who and how to target.
Group 15 (EN) and Group 16 (SP) Building commitments that impact the lives of the people – how do we do it?
In this session we will discuss a perennial question for a lot of us working in OGP processes – how do we build ambitious and innovative commitments that have the potential of impacting the lives of citizens. There are good examples in the Action Plans - commitments on health, education, the environment. With the Sustainable Development Goals signed - and OGP’ ambition to be a platform for delivery of those - the time is right to join us to share your stories and challenges in this area.

At this Global Summit we have an unparalleled opportunity engage subnational governments, especially cities and municipalities, more actively in the OGP. Engaging this tier of governments and civil society organizations will highlight open government innovations at the local level, create opportunities for mutual learning, and help local governments run more efficiently and openly. Greater engagement in the OGP will enhance the global visibility of these efforts and provide positive publicity for local successes. At this session we will present the case for deepening local engagement and an outline for a subnational pilot program. You will hear about exciting innovations in transparency and open government from CSOs working with cities and local governments around the world and have the opportunity to share your experience and perspectives on this exciting new aspect of OGP work.
This session will seek to introduce, and help CSOs develop, strategic approaches towards creating, defending and reclaiming civic space without compromising their mandates. Understanding the global trends towards closing of civic space is the first step in civil society going beyond reacting to cases of civic space restriction; to actively and effectivley using tools and tactics available to CSOs to protect civic space.
Best ways of involving the Legislative branch in the ‘openness partnerships’
Organizations in charge: Sunlight Foundation / Fundar / Directorio Legislativo
Objective: to come up with a common vision about the work relationship between CSOs/PMOs and Parliaments, towards the launch of the Open Parliament Network.
3 to 4 simultaneous round tables where one or two experts lead the discussion on experiences of legislative openness in 30 minutes in order to come up with lessons and best practices to share to the whole group.
Another 30 minutes to debate the next question: what should CSOs/PMOs should demand/ask to Parliaments in order to work together?
Love it or hate it, lobbying happens – civil society also does it and many government officials are a target. We are concerned about it because we know that lobbying impacts on decision-making in key areas of democratic life – take public health, energy, extractive industries, food security, and environment for a start!
So what should we do about it? How should OGP countries regulate lobbying? What are the limits? What about questions of privacy and protection of commercial interests? How do we make decision making transparent and participatory without opening it up to wild lobbying pressures?
The new International Lobby Regulation Standards will be launched at the OGP on 29 October. Special preview here: http://lobbyingtransparency.net/
Join the debate now with the two Helens: an open an interactive session coordinated by Helen Darbishire of Access Info and Helen Turek of Transparency International.
Note: the International Lobby Regulation Standards have been prepared following a dynamic process of reviewing legislation worldwide and consulting with civil society, government and lobbyists. Key organisations leading the drafting were Access Info, Open Knowledge Fondation, Sunlight Foundation, Transparency International, and many others.
Many of the participating countries in the Open Government Partnership framework are foreign aid recipients. While development of accountability mechanisms for internal transparency dominates the paradigms for the development of country National Action Plans of these donor driven OGP members, little has been pointed to foreign aid transparency through the open aid data vehicle. It is increasingly becoming worrisome that donors, NGOs and civil society lack the level of transparency and accountability, which they demand from OGP recipient countries. Therefore, aid meant to better the lives of the poor are mostly lost in the process of delivering. Unlike recipient governments who have internal check mechanisms that enhanced accountability such as the internal audits, civil society and the media, donor countries and NGOs delivering aid have no one to hold them to account. Due to the lack of information on aid, local actors such as civil society and the media are unable to hold to account international players.
Therefore, with the overall objectives of the OGP being building structures to entrench the culture of transparency and accountability, it is time to frankly discuss whether the issue of aid transparency been forgotten in the OGP transparency drive? Is there a relationship between transparency and accountability by donors, through making public aid data, and the overall OGP objectives? Should donors be subjected to more transparency guidelines by the OGP framework and thus the need for the review of the conceptual framework itself? Without putting accountability requirement on the donors, is there a level playing field that allows the preachers to live what they preach? How important is aid data to the overall aid is effectiveness campaign?
Most important has governments used this seeming lack of transparency and accountability as a justification for restricting civil society space?
This roundtable discussion will explore some of these issues. There will be introductory statements from three discussants and participants will be allowed to discuss the issues raised.
The Transparency International EU, in its commitment to root out political corruption in the EU , recently launched EU Integrity Watch. This platform is a central hub for online tools, making use of the various open data sources, which allow citizens, journalists and civil society to monitor the integrity of the EU.
Daniel Freund from TI EU will present the latest version of EU Integrity Watch, along with other practitioners from the field, to showcase what open government could mean for the EU and provide concrete examples from monitoring lobbying, conflicts of interest, outside incomes and activities of politicians.
The main objective of this session will be to demonstrate what is already possible using available open data and at the same time to point out what else is needed. This is based on the fundamental conviction that open information is meaningful only in as much as citizens and others can make use of it.
The presentation is meant to lead into an open exchange about the possible opportunities and limitations of civic tech and open data while inspiring others by discussing first-hand experiences.
The aim of the workshop will be to provide a venue to draw on CSO experiences from across the globe to share knowledge, identify strategies that work, and begin discussion toward ways to advance open government – and overcome obstacles in collaborations between national CSOs and their governments involved in the OGP processes. During the workshop, presenters and participants will be encouraged to share their experiences, identify commonalities, and provide lessons-learned and, it is hoped, begin to identify strategies to strengthen CSO-government collaboration in developing and implementing national action plans.
The workshop will include a 40-minutes break-out session where participants will be divided into groups, led by each of our presenters, to discuss the challenges CSOs face when engaging with one another and with governments. We encourage participants to come prepared to discuss the following topics: 1) How do you coordinate with other CSOs?; 2) What are the approaches you use to work with government on NAP development and/or consultation on the commitments?; 3) What lessons have you learned from your OGP experiences?; 4) How do you monitor government progress on OGP commitments?
The final section of the workshop will be a 20 minutes report back from the presenters, where we will discuss the findings from the break-out sessions, and work to identify strategies for working with national governments, ideas for improving coalition building among CSOs, regularly-experiences obstacles and new approaches to overcome these obstacles.
Opening Health? Exploring Civic Participation and Open Data in the Health Sector.
Throughout the world, citizens increasingly expect more from their governments in terms of the delivery of public health services. Indeed, access to quality healthcare makes a significant difference in quality of life. As the health sector is complex and often characterized by malpractice, inefficiencies, corruption, low quality, and poor access the use of new technologies and data has the potential to improve service delivery. In this roundtable we discuss different initiatives that pilot such tools to solve health challenges. In particular, we seek to explore how citizen participation and open data can positively influence health policy making. We want your feedback, ideas, and challenges!
Each panelist will give a short presentation about their work. The facilitator will encourage the audience to ask questions. Participants will then be asked to join a roundtable discussion to contribute with their feedback, ideas and challenges.

Tech Collaborative meeting
Organization in charge: Cristiano Ferri / NDI / Fundar
The OGP Legislative Openness Working Group has helped to bring together partners to create a parliamentary “tech collaborative” of civil society and parliamentary staff with the goal of sharing and creating technological solutions for parliaments to advance openness and accountability. During the 2nd Global Legislative Openness Week in September 2015, the speakers and legislative staff from the Chamber of Deputies in Brazil and the UK House of Commons will come together to promote new tools like the Chamber’s WikiLegis system. This session at the OGP Summit will allow members of the tech collaborative to showcase their collaboration and to develop plans to include additional partners in 2016.

This session is intended for eveyone who wants to know more about the basics of OGP. During this 101 session we will touch upon all the basic elements of OGP- such as the structure and governance of the partnership, OGP eligibility, how to get organised as civil society, the Action Plan co-creation process and its requirements, and Independent and civil society monitoring.
Following a 15 minutes presentation on the basic ingredients of OGP, various subthemes and elements of the OGP process will be discussed by an expert panel, in which there will also be room for questions from the audience. In the second half of the session we will do a deep dive into the ins and outs of the IRM and how civil society can make strategic use of the findings of the IRM for advocacy purposes.

Activaremos la inteligencia colectiva a través de un taller en el que buscamos que los participantes identifiquen desafíos colectivos.
En este taller se identificarán y priorizarán desafíos colectivos alrededor de cómo activar la inteligencia colectiva entre sociedad civil y gobierno. Una vez finalizada la cumbre se establecerán reuniones virtuales como esquema de seguimiento a las colaboración para la solución de los desafíos.
Open Data still largely remain theory: there remains a need to translate usually complex data into actionable information by providing it in ways and formats that are understandable and relevant to maximize their potential to affect change. Infomediaries take on a pivotal role in this process. They assume a public information responsibility, gathering, analyzing and disseminating data and translating it into actionable information that engages and empowers citizens, and lead to collective action. But is their role sufficiently understood?
Julia Hoffmann (Hivos), Shita Laksmi (SEATTI) and Raisa Valda (La Pública) will talk about what it takes for infomediaries to do their job and will present two successful cases of infomediaries' work at its best: DataBO (Bolivia) and #Hackjak2015 (Indonesia)
Civic space is a necessary precondition for the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals. Creating space for citizens where they can share ideas, further common interests and have a say in society's direction, contributes to locally owned solutions to emerging problems and also helps to build checks and balances in society.
In this session we will deconstruct and discuss the term 'civic space' and 'civil society'; share current trends that lead to shifting space; and try to define specific recommendations to increase space for civil society.

The Freedom of Information (FOI) and Open Government Data (OGD) communities have had different origins as well as different goals and motivations. The number of FOI laws has currently amounted to more than 100 and OGD has become a key feature for government officials, practitioners and advocates in just 10 years.
Even though these two approaches to government data and information are complementary, these two groups are not closely collaborating with each other, as one could imagine. Differences in approaches, languages, skills seem to build barriers for their interaction. However, those differences are the key elements that make this collaboration necessary.
This workshop aims to continue the conversation between global civil society actors working on both agendas. A list of renowned OGD and FOI experts from around the world will be joining the conversation:
Américas: Alianza Regional por la Libre Expresión e Información (FOI), ILDA & Smart Citizen Foundation (Open Data)
Europa: Access Info Europe (FOI), Open Knowledge (Open Data)
Africa: AFIC (FOI), Web Foundation (Open Data)
Asia: TI Indonesia (FOI), Jakarta Open Data Lab/Web Foundation (Open Data)
Las comunidades de Acceso a la Información Pública y de Datos Abiertos han tenido diferentes orígenes, así como diferentes objetivos y motivaciones. En los últimos años, las leyes de acceso a la información han superado 100 a nivel mundial, y en menos de 10 años iniciativas de datos abiertos se han convertido en una tendencia para los gobiernos y activistas de todo el mundo.
A pesar de que estos dos agendas son complementarias, los actores trabajando en cada una de ellas no se encuentran colaborando tan estrechamente, como se esperaría. Las diferencias en términos de enfoques, lenguaje y habilidades, entre otras, se interponen en dicha interacción. Sin embargo, esas diferencias son los elementos que hacen que dicha colaboración sea necesaria.
Este taller pretende continuar la conversación sobre esta convergencia con actores clave de sociedad civil a nivel global. Para ello, se contará con la participación de expertos internacionales en el área de Datos Abiertos, como así también de Acceso a la Información, de todos los continentes:
Américas: Alianza Regional por la Libre Expresión e Información (AIP), ILDA & Fundación Ciudadano Inteligente (Datos Abiertos)
Europa: Access Info Europe (AIP), Open Knowledge (Datos Abiertos)
Africa: AFIC (AIP), Web Foundation (Datos Abiertos)
Asia: TI Indonesia (AIP), Jakarta Open Data Lab/ Web Foundation (Datos Abiertos)

From Open to Inclusive: How Can the OGP Tackle Political, Economic, Social and Cultural Exclusion
Panel Focus: to address how to make the open governance field in general and the OGP initiative in particular more inclusive of organizations and networks representing communities and social groups in conditions of vulnerability and systemic marginalization.
Expected Outcome: Identification of proposed pathways for inclusiveness which would then be shared with subsequently with interested stakeholders for feedback and sharpening of proposals that would be delivered to the OGP Steering Committee subsequently.
De Abierto a Inclusivo: ¿Cómo puede la AGA combatir la exclusión política, económica, social y cultural?
Foco del Panel: cómo hacer que el campo de la gobernanza abierta en general, y la iniciativa de la AGA, en particular, sea más inclusiva de las organizaciones y redes que representan a las comunidades y grupos sociales en condiciones de vulnerabilidad y marginalidad sistémica
Resultado Esperado: Identificación de propuestas concretas/próximos pasos para fortalecer la capacidad de la AGA para combatir la exclusión. Estas propuestas serán compartidas con “stakeholders” (otros actores) interesados para su retroalimentación y el fortalecimiento de las propuestas. Luego serán enviados al Comité Directivo de AGA.

Frente al avance hacia dinámicas de gobierno abierto en América Latina emerge la pregunta inevitable de cuántos de estos procesos están modificando también las prácticas políticas para el fortalecimiento de la democracia así como si existe conocimiento real en distintos sectores y tomadores de decisión sobre las principales ventajas, dificultades que hay para establecer un gobierno abierto? ¿Qué recomendaciones hacer para asegurar el establecimiento de este tipo de estrategias? Para ensayar distintas reflexiones sobre estas preguntas, se ha conformado un panel diverso que esperamos nos permita clarificar algunos de estos aspectos.
This book is about how to start opening congresses and parliaments. It contains experiences, interpretations and failures from people who have managed to persuade their parliaments to start becoming more open, and from people who are still fighting to accomplish this.
In order to push parliamentary openness forward, we must be able to learn quickly from what others are doing right in other parts of the world.There is a common denominator. We all agree that democracy must be reinvented, and that the legislative branch, due to its nature and essence, is an ideal place to start.
Este libro es sobre cómo empezar a abrir a los congresos y parlamentos en el mundo. Contiene experiencias, interpretaciones y fracasos, de quienes han logrado persuadir a sus parlamentos de empezar a abrirse y sobre quienes todavía están luchando por hacerlo.
Para avanzar en la apertura parlamentaria, tenemos que ser capaces de aprender rápidamente de lo que están haciendo bien en otras latitudes. Hay un común denominador. Todos estamos convencidos de que la democracia tiene que ser reinventada y que, por su naturaleza y vocación, el Poder Legislativo es un lugar idóneo para empezar a hacerlo.
Through an interview format, experts will be questioned on the topics covered in the book, as well as their experience and views on the challenges that parliamentary openness represents. Through panlist answers, assistants will know more about the international perspective , the implementation process in Georgia , the experience in Latin America and the Mexican case.
A través de un formato de entrevista, los expertos serán cuestionados sobre los temas tratados en el libro, así como también de su experiencia y opinión sobre los retos que la apertura parlamentaria representa. A través de las respuestas de los panelistas el público conocerá la perspectiva internacional, el proceso de implementación en Georgia, la experiencia en Latinoamérica y el caso mexicano.
Participants will discuss projects involving access to information held by the police, with the aims of (a) examining the impact, or potential impact, of such projects, and (2) sharing ideas about ways to encourage governments to develop and implement OGP commitments on policing. Can increased transparency concerning policing lead to improved policies, respect for rights, or other policing outcomes?
Prof. Juan Salgado and Prof. Gregory Michener will discuss the methodology and results of a multi-country study on access to information concerning policing of protests, including results from Brazil, India, England/Scotland, Mexico and South Africa. Helen Darbishire will describe Access Info Europe’s project to obtain information from 42 European countries also about the policing of protests. Zoe Reiter, Americas Regional Program Manager of Transparency International, will talk about TI's work on police transparency. Evelyn Villareal, Vice President of Costa Rica Integra, a chapter of TI, will discuss her work on police transparency and accountability in Costa Rica, and trends across Central America. Jesse Franzblau will address the question as to why don’t we know how many people the police kill in the USA each year, and the importance of data in holding police accountable. We look forward to hearing about other projects involving security sector transparency, including monitoring websites of security sector agencies.
This workshop explore cutting-edge strategies, tools and methods that demonstrate constructive engagement and collaboration between civil society organizations (CSOs) and governments to address endemic corruption. It illustrate the incredible accomplishments of citizens who successfully fought corruption to demonstrate and build on promising approaches to participatory anti-corruption activities across a variety of issue areas at local and national levels.
This session will provide the opportunity for on-the-ground practitioners to share ideas, challenges and strategies with experts and counterparts. Designated speakers have designed and implemented a series of innovations for engaging directly with public agencies to expose and stop well-identified corrupt activities. Pariticpants will be invited to share applicable experiences and receive feedback on their own ideas for citizen centric anti-corruption initiatives.
Intended workshop participants include CSO counterparts, government representatives and private sector interested in civic participation against systemic corruption.
