Open Government in Australia & the UK
Open Government in Australia and the UK: a discussion with the Australian and UK IRM 12th July 2018 2-5pm Birkbeck College, London
This round table discussion will look at how Australia and the UK compare in terms of the openness of their government, based on the views of two academics involved in the Open Government Partnership assessment process. Reflecting particularly on the two government’s Open Government Partnership commitments, it will also look more broadly at the performance and workings of their respective Freedom of Information (FOI) regimes and other experiments in openness.
Speaker: Daniel Stewart (ANU and Australia IRM).
Discussant: Ben Worthy (Birkbeck College and UK IRM).
