Rome [ENA] On 11 and 12 October, the European Regional Meeting of Open Government Partnership (OGP) is held in Rome. OGP is an institution that brings together 77 governments and thousands of representatives of civil society. The Institution promotes the themes of democratic, inclusive and responsible governance and, together with the Governments of Italy and Estonia, organizes the Roman event that brings together

institutional representatives of partner countries, members of civil society, academics and journalists at various title involved in the issues of "open government", for a discussion on democratic processes, on the procedures and systems of government and administration of democracies and on how to make them more transparent, inclusive, participatory and responsible. Europe is home to more than two-thirds of the world’s liberal democracies, according to the V-Dem Institute's Democracy Report 2022. However, the same report found that democracy has weakened in all but a select few of these countries over the past ten years. While the causes are multi-faceted and often country-specific, the report also identified common threads including

increasing polarization driven by online misinformation and disinformation, corporate secrecy shaped by the few and inaccessible to the many, and a widespread failure to meaningfully involve the public in decision-making. During the same 10 years where democracy has been in decline globally, and in Europe, OGP has grown to include 77 national, 106 local members, and thousands of civil society organizations , collaborating to deliver almost 5000 open government reforms to date. Other mechanisms include the 2017 adoption of the OECD Recommendation on Open Government, which paved the way to a harmonized design and implementation of open government policies.

This dialogue will explore whether and how open government mechanisms and reforms can rise to meet the major challenges to democratic values in Europe and beyond.
