Open Government in Tunisia

image of Open Government in Tunisia

The Open Government Review of Tunisia is the first of its kind analysing a country’s open government policies and practices and their institutional and legal frameworks for implementation against OECD instruments. The analysis focuses on how public sector’s openness, transparency and accountability can be enhanced and therefore promote trust in government, in assessing : coherence and coordination of open government policies; citizens’ participation in policymaking; public financial management; integrity and anti-corruption initiatives; and the role of Information and Communication Technologies and Social Media. It also includes case studies of open government and local development. By bringing together a multitude of OECD instruments and expertise in different areas of public governance, the Review provides Tunisian policymakers, public sector officials and civil society activists with practical indications on how to improve and successfully implement their national open government agenda. In addition, the Review contains a list of recommendations that have been included in Tunisia’s first Action Plan for the Open Government Partnership.

Open Government at the local level in Tunisia: Two case studies

Local governments have a key role in implementing Open Government (OG). Local authorities are at the forefront of the State. Their performance shapes people’s perception of the quality of the government, as a whole. Their proximity with people and with their needs spurs citizen scrutiny, engagement and participation. Their capacity to pool information about opportunities and challenges facing their community put them in a pivotal role to support business and promote inclusive and sustainable economic development. For all these reasons, local governments have to be transparent, accountable, accessible, and ready to react to citizens’ feedbacks, and – last but not least – interface their communities with higher levels of government.
