Open Gov Germany

Short update: German Federal Ministry of the Interior is reaching out to the civil society these days. After an online consultation on a Federal-and-State-Level-Workingroup whitepaper on Open Government, meetings with NGOs and professionals are completing the feedback process on that paper - today at a participation barcamp, tomorrow at the ministry. As expected, numerous suggestions to include the Open Government Partnership, were replaced by vague wording mentioning international activities. Also, the paper is strongly concentrating on Open Data, complementing other work in that area by the government. Openness in legislative and judicative sectors find almost no mention at all. However, considering the standing the final paper will likely achieve, it is a good step forward....

Urgent need for open government action attested by representative study carried out by Berlin-based #OGP working group. Germany has not yet joined the Open Government Partnership, and has not ratified an important international anti-corruption treaty http://opengovgermany.com/2012/04/21/representative-study-in-germany-attests-urgent-need-for-open-government/

A study commissioned by the German Ministry of the Interior, carried out in large part by Fraunhofer FOKUS, on Open Data will pave the way for a pilot open data platform on federal level by 2013. The study is as of yet not available in English.
