OGP Global Summit to be held next week

Georgia, co-chair of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), will host the 5th OGP Global Summit in Tbilisi on 17–19 July 2018.

Representatives from OGP’s 96 national and local participants — heads of state and governments, ministers, public servants, members of parliament, local authorities, civil society representatives, international foundations, researchers and academia — will gather in Tbilisi to promote their achievements and discuss the challenges in upholding the principles of open government.

The OGP 2018 Global Summit will focus on civic engagement, fighting against corruption and public service delivery. The objectives of the summit are to promote peer learning, inspire OGP reformers to raise the level of ambition and push the open government agenda forward to address new challenges and improve the lives of citizens around the world.

The agenda for the Global Summit was co-created with the community through an open call for proposals, which were then evaluated by an editorial committee. More than 500 proposals were received in less than a month, covering the three main tracks — Anti-Corruption, Civic Engagement and Public Service Delivery — and an open track showcasing other emerging issues.
