Call for proposals for research on Open Government Partnership

The Transparency and Accountability Initiative (T/AI) is excited to announce a new research opportunity exploring the contribution of the Open Government Partnership (OGP) to responsive and accountable governance.  The OGP is a global initiative that aims to support action in member countries to pursue more transparent, accountable and responsive governance. With its rapid expansion to over 60 countries and an increasing global profile, now is an opportune moment to engage in an exploration of the OGP’s dynamics and effects on the ground.

This research builds on earlier dialogues T/AI has sponsored exploring the impact of international transparency and accountability initiatives on the ground.

Concept papers are due October 27.  Please see the below call for proposals:
