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.



Digital government as an enabler for open government in Lithuania

This chapter analyses the development and role of digital government in the promotion of open government. Starting out with a brief description of the national digital context, it discusses if and how the Lithuanian government succeeded to set digital government priorities that are aligned with national policy priorities; whether current governance and co-ordination frameworks are fit to achieve those objectives; and the ways in which implementation capacities can be further improved to support the development of a more open and effective government.
