It's hard to believe that it's already August! As a final few lunchtime events before the fall season opens up in September, we hope that you can join us for two very interesting discussions on technology for democracy, as well as the idea of a international anti-corruption court.
The Modern Requirements of Participatory Democracy
Thursday, August 21st, 12.30-2pm
What is the role that civil society can play in building accountable, legislative branch systems? Is technology leveraging participation to build this new public space? Will open data and civic technology be able to bridge the gap between demands for inclusion and today’s mostly obsolete systems?
An International Anti-Corruption Court?
Friday, August 22nd, 12.30-2pm
You are invited to a lunch session at the OpenGov Hub to learn more about the Case and Coalition for an International Anti-Corruption Court (IACC). This special lunch session will be led by Roey Rosenblith, the Executive Director of Not In My Country, and will speak to the push for this new campaign.
