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.

Technology and Open Government in Tunisia

This chapter explores Tunisia’s current e-government strategy and practices and how they support the use of ICTs as a tool to implement Open Government reforms. The effectiveness of the strategy, the role played by the diverse actors involved in its implementation and the key legal and policy frameworks are also analysed vis-a-vis the challenges that poverty, illiteracy, and gender inequality pose to the widespread use of ICTs for inclusive citizens’ participation and Open Government. The chapter equally examines the capacities of Tunisian public servants to fully exploit the potential of ICTs and e-government and addresses the current approach to opening up government data for the use by national and international public and private sectors. A set of recommendations provides Tunisia with ideas how to further benefit from a more strategic use of ICTs and social media for Open Government.
