Open Government Partnership is hosting a 2018 blog series led by undergraduate students from Carleton University’s Communication and Media Studies program.

The blog posts were written by students enrolled in a fourth-year course on Open Government and Communication (COMS 4406) taught by Prof. Mary Francoli.

The Open Government Partnership is a multilateral initiative that aims to secure concrete commitments from governments to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance. It started with 8 founding countries in 2011. Today it includes 75 member countries.
