Open Government is a set of principles and cultural techniques to modernise and strengthen co-creation and trust in the relationship between governments and civil society. It’s driven by two main objectives: 1) ensuring interaction with society and trust in its „operating system“, the state institutions, and 2) monitoring the balancing of goods and interests to which these institutions are instrumentalised against the common good. In an age of turmoil and mistrust in governments around the world, the facilitation of societal learning and experimentation, transparency and open infrastructures are key to build transformative competencies and collaboration capacities. During this session, we explore the intersections of Open Government and Creative Bureaucracy and how they support the two dimensions – in particular by looking at examples from Peru and Argentina. Furthermore, we want to highlight where trends and institutions can amplify each other – and how other countries can partner and learn together.
