January ICYMI: OpenGov in DC, Kleptocracy, and the Start of New Things

January ICYMI: OpenGov in DC, Kleptocracy, and the Start of New Things

OpenGov Hub is home to over 40 organizations, so there is always a lot of activity happening within our doors. Whether that's a member organized event on open government in the Philippines or an outside group wanting to host a demo on blockchain technology.
We want to help you keep track of everything that is going on, so we'll be posting this monthly ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) blog to give you a roundup of some of the happenings at the Hub.

What to Expect This Year From OpenGov Hub

What to Expect This Year From OpenGov Hub

After spending much of January reflecting, strategizing, and planning for the year ahead, we just had to share with all of you what we’ve been up to. We are that excited about it.

Here are four exciting priorities you can look forward to seeing and participating in from the OpenGov Hub in 2017

Understanding and Operationalizing Accountability Ecoystems

On December 16th, 2016, with threats to democratic checks and balances on the rise worldwide, Root ChangeChemonicsGlobal Integrity, and the International Budget Partnership hosted an event at the OpenGov HubUnderstanding and Operationalizing an Accountability Ecosystems Approach

We aimed to do three things:

  • Provide an introduction to the conceptual framework underpinning accountability ecosystems;

  • Introduce the audience to a few examples of how practitioners in different contexts are already engaging with those concepts;

  • Engage session participants in reflecting on and further exploring the features and implications of an ecosystems approach.
