Lithuania: Fostering Open and Inclusive Policy Making

image of Lithuania: Fostering Open and Inclusive Policy Making

This review analyses open government principles and practices in Lithuania with the aim to support the government of Lithuania in its current and future public governance reforms. In this context, the OECD examines the role of the centre of government as a catalyst for open government reforms, analyses citizens' participation as a key open government practice and explores the opportunities and challenges of digital government as enabler for open government. It examines open government at the level of central government, complemented by a health sector case study. The book presents practical recommendations to assist the government in delivering on its commitment to enhance openness and inclusiveness of policy making and service delivery, and to strengthen government-citizen relations.



Assessment and recommendations

The purpose of this Public Governance Review is to support Lithuania in the enhancement of open and inclusive policy making and service delivery, as well as the strengthening of government-citizen relations. This Review covers three main areas: centre of government (CoG) co-ordination capacity as a catalyst for open government, citizens’ engagement as a core open government practice and digital government as an enabler for open government. The Review also includes a case study of open government in the health sector, mirroring the three main open government topics of the Review, i.e. linkage with the CoG’s agenda to foster open government (at sector level), citizens’ engagement and digital governance.
