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.



Assessment and Recommendations

Argentina has been implementing policies to promote open government principles for some time, but the current government has given new impetus to the country’s open government reform agenda. The new approach to open government represents a true change of paradigm and could be characterised as a big bang approach. In the space of only a few years, thanks to the important efforts of the then Ministry of Modernisation, an important number of new institutions joined the open government agenda and initiatives are now being implemented by entities at all levels of government and by all branches of power. From a narrow initial focus on e-government the current government has seen Argentina’s open government agenda start to mature, moving beyond the Open Government Partnership (OGP) process towards a much broader approach incorporating all open government principles.
