The Open Government Partnership, launched in 2011 to foster more open and accountable government, more responsive to citizens, is an increasingly important initiative for the countries of the Western Balkans, going hand in hand with the reforms embarked upon in the EU accession process. The governments of the Western Balkans have come together on the occasion of the Western Balkans OGP Dialogue 2015, hosted by IDM and the Minister of Innovation and Public Administration, in Tirana, Albania, on 10-11 September 2015, when they made the four commitments 1) to join with civil society in a concerted public awareness campaign to explain to citizens the OGP initiative objectives, 2) to co-operate in sharing standards in open data, and in promoting innovative practices across all countries, 3) to establish a permanent Western Balkans OGP Dialogue Forum to enable regular multi-stakeholder consultation on OGP Action Plan implementation, and 4) to innovatively increase citizens’ engagement in the success of the OGP initiative.
