Open Government in Argentina

image of Open Government in Argentina

Argentina is undertaking an ambitious reform to move beyond open government to become an “open state”. This review assesses Argentina’s progress with implementing the 10 provisions of the 2017 OECD Recommendation of the Council on Open Government. Based on extensive data gathered from all branches and levels of government, as well as civil society, this review assesses the progress made to date in these reforms and highlights good practices. It also provides guidance on how Argentina can better align its public sector reform with the Recommendation to achieve its vision.


Towards a more solid legal and regulatory framework for open government in Argentina

A robust legal and regulatory framework is one of the essential building blocks and necessary pre-conditions for the successful implementation of open government strategies and initiatives. This chapter therefore analyses Argentina’s main legal and regulatory underpinnings for open government reforms and includes a discussion of the framework provided by the Argentinian constitution and the solid basis it forms for open government. The chapter recognises the important progress Argentina has made through the adoption of the Law on the Right of Access to Public Information in 2016 and provides an in-depth analysis thereof. The last part provides recommendations to support the ongoing elaboration of a State Modernisation Law.
