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.

Tunisia's centre of government

The centre of government (CoG) plays a key role in coordinating the implementation of Open Government. It is responsible for setting a vision, developing a strategy and implementing Open Government policies across levels of government. This chapter analyses Tunisia’s CoG and its ability to achieve Tunisia’s Open Government objectives. It suggests to reinforce the CoG for Open Government and to better exercise its leadership in this very timely period marked by the historic approval of the 2014 Constitution. The chapter identifies a set of recommendations to strengthen open government in Tunisia, which include the identification of Open Government advocates, the development of a detailed open government national strategy and implementation plan and the promotion of Open Government initiatives at the local level, which should be accompanied by an integrated communication strategy.
