Published by ePSI Platform
Open Government Partnership (OGP) is gaining momentum and as evidence to this is the impressive number of Governments that have joined this partnership during the past 2 years. By joining this multi-stakeholder initiative, Governments commit to promote transparency, empower citizens, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to strengthen governance.

Open Government as well as Open Data are rather old principles, however, mobile technologies and Internet managed to transform these concepts during the past years and this transformation has become not only in scale but in kind as well. The core link between Open Data and Open Government is public transparency given that by opening up and sharing information/ data, citizens can hold their Governments more responsible and accountable for their actions.

This paper gives an introduction to what is OGP and its relationship with the open data concepts and will look at two countries cases from Europe (Moldova and Romania) to look more in detail on how did the OGP process influenced the national open data policies.
