Perspectives on Open Government

  • "Open Data, accessed via a free and open Web, has the potential to create a better world.
    However, best practice in London or New York is not necessarily best practice in Lima or Nairobi."

    Sir Tim Berners-Lee > Read Article
  • "Official information that enhances people's capacity to exercise their rights belongs in the public domain.
    This information must be accessible and understandable."

    United Nations Development Programme, 2004 > View Report
  • "The days when governments could blithely set out plans and commitments and not expect to be held to account when they're not met have gone. We expect to be challenged on our priorities and how we deliver them.
    This is what will make transparency stick."

    Francis Maude > Read Article
  • "if you depend on any centralised data source, even one run by the world’s richest and most-powerful government,
    it can fail and leave you cut off."

Open Gov 360° has Four Major Goals:


To widen the scope of open government programmes that are conducted around the world to include both high and low tech open government solutions.


To affect a change in donor policy that would require governments that receive foreign aid to become members of the Open Government Partnership.

Collective Action

To bring organizations, governments and individuals together to share ideas and inspire a new paradigm of how to achieve open government.


To inspire creative low-tech solutions to engage those in the Global South without access to technology.
