The Open Government Partnership Multi-Donor Trust Fund: Research on the Impact of Open Government and Participatory Democracy

As the open government agenda gains steam, relatively little systematic research has been done to examine the ways different types and sequences of reforms have played out in various contexts, and with what impact.

To address these knowledge gaps, and to sharpen our ways of thinking about the difference that open government processes can make, the OGP and several Development Partners (DFID, AFD, GAC) have established a funding mechanism, the OGP MDTF, to expand research activities in the areas of Open Government, public participation, and Civic Tech.
