Open Legislative initiatives in the region

Veronica_VerkhovnaRada_LyivExactly a month ago, the Global Legislative Openness Conference “Building Citizen Trust through Openness and Engagement” took place in Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine.  The event was hosted by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and organized by the Legislative Openness Working Group of the Open Government Partnership and Open Parliament Initiative in Ukraine.

Open Government Institute was represented by Veronica Cretu, who participated along with leading legislators, government officials, and civil society representatives in order to discuss ways legislative openness can strengthen public trust in representative institutions and build a responsive, 21st-century legislature. In addition, the conference explored how parliaments can best leverage the Open Government Partnership’s new legislative engagement policy to develop and implement legislative openness plans and commitments.
