how governments, citizens, and the private sector can benefit from open
governance, based on a comprehensive review of hundreds of the best studies
on the subject.

empirical and theoretical literature examining the international impact of
open government and offer recommendations for policymakers considering open
government initiatives.  We derive from our review of the evidence an
original rubric of the six critical elements that we believe open
government initiatives must have. This typology organizes what is known
about the impact of open government and identifies the contexts in which
open government efforts are most likely to be successful. We conclude by
shining light on what future research is needed to further improve global
understanding of the potential of open government to achieve its ambitious

If you will be attending the Open Government Partnership Global Summit in
Paris, we invite you to join us for a special session about this research
at 1:15pm on Thursday
