Open Government Partnership

International Open Government Partnership initiative has chosen Oxford Research to evaluate the progress of Finland’s action plan

Open Government Partnership is an initiative that aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, harness new technologies to strengthen governance.


Finland joined Sweden, Norway, Denmark and other 60 countries in April 2013 with an action plan that aims to promote the government's role as an enabler, to open government's processes and knowledge, and to promote clear language in administration.


Oxford Research Finland carries out the evaluation of Finland's action plan as part of the Independent Reporting Mechanism of the Open Government Partnership. The evaluation is implemented in two parts in 2014-2015 with an aim to progress the fulfillment of open government principles and to stimulate dialogue between the government and citizens.
