Open Government Partnership

US

Established 2011

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) consists of seventy-eight countries and a growing number of local governments—representing more than two billion people—along with thousands of civil society organizations. On the one hand OGP has grown into a mature partnership, with 78 national members, a growing number of local governments and thousands of civil society participants. Together they have co-created over 4000 open government reforms, of which a significant proportion have shown major impact. Yet at the same time as OGP has been growing, the wider geopolitical context has been one of democratic backsliding, closing civic space and the rise of authoritarian and populist politics, including in OGP member countries.
