Research Opportunity at the Open Government Partnership Action Plans

The deadline for applications is June 21, 2013. Direct questions to the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) Program Manager at joseph.foti@opengovpartnership.org.

The Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) is seeking individuals to carry out research at the national level in 39 countries to assess government progress on implementation of OGP Action Plans. The OGP is a multilateral initiative that aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. The IRM is a key means by which all stakeholders can track progress within participating countries. By tracking and publicizing progress, it promotes strong accountability between member governments and citizens. The IRM works primarily by disseminating annual independent assessment reports for each OGP participating government. Each national progress report will assess the implementation of action plans and progress in fulfilling open government principles, and will develop technical recommendations.

The 39 countries to be evaluated in late 2013 include: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Montenegro, Netherlands, Paraguay, Peru, Romania, Slovak Republic, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Tanzania, Turkey, Ukraine, and Uruguay.
