The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a global initiative launched in 2011 by eight countries to promote civic engagement, participation, transparency and accountability. Today, the OGP counts 65 countries that have published one (or more) action plan(s), setting specific goals for the development of national open government strategy. The published action plans represent valuable information for analyzing the different strategies adopted by OGP countries in the field of openness. What are the emerging strategic aims of the considered action plans? What are the main differences in terms of structure and contents? Are there any peculiar differences between Liberal, Mediterranean, Baltic and Nordic countries in this field?

Abstract

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) is a global initiative launched in 2011 by eight countries to promote civic engagement, participation, transparency and accountability. Today, the OGP counts 65 countries that have published one (or more) action plan(s), setting specific goals for the development of national open government strategy. The published action plans represent valuable information for analyzing the different strategies adopted by OGP countries in the field of openness. What are the emerging strategic aims of the considered action plans? What are the main differences in terms of structure and contents? Are there any peculiar differences between Liberal, Mediterranean, Baltic and Nordic countries in this field? We address these questions highlighting inter and infra group differences emerging from the national documents of the four considered groups. Issues such as transparency, citizen participation and anti-corruption programs, are comparatively explored by using statistical textanalysis tools.
