The IRM’s Mid-Term Report on the 3rd National Action Plan was published today. You can see the report here
There’s a handy summary on pages 3-5 and some general conclusions and recommendations on page 119.
My five key recommendations are:
A Parliamentary committee (and respective other devolved equivalents) to oversee transparency policies
A high profile intervention or an event in support of the OGP process
A focus on more information and data on the impact of Brexit on everyday life
Continue to experiment with new ways of engaging CSOs
High profile cross-cutting ‘signature’ reforms that are cross-cutting and high-profile (of a kind seen in the third action plan such as Beneficial ownership)
I’ll have a series of blog post summaries ready in the next few days. For any of you who are still keen, I’m hosting a free event with my Australian equivalent on 12th July in London that you can sign up to here
