Building Change Trust: Open Government Network NI External Evaluation Report, Peter Osborne and Derek Browne – April 2017
The Northern Ireland Open Government Network (the OGN) has been one of the key initiatives of the Building Change Trust Creative Space for Civic Thinking programme. The Network links to wider open government initiatives through the UK and Ireland Open Government Action Plans.
The OGN was established in November 2014 to provide a regional focus for both the UK and Ireland action plans going forward, and to directly liaise with the Northern Ireland Executive and departments, local government and civil society in taking for-ward regional commitments to more open government.
