10 principes pour un Gouvernement Ouvert Effectif
10 Principles for an Effective Open Government
- I. Bouhadana & W. Gilles - Paris, 5 dec. 2016.


One of the goals of the open government process is to promote greater transparency and encourage citizen participation and collaboration in government decision-making, but also to promote government accountability. In this perspective, it is important to emphasize the role of citizens, civil society and stakeholders in decision-making to improve government policies.
