Final technical report - a feminist approach to open government : investing in gender equality to drive sustainable development
The report reviews evidence of the impact of open government to determine whether openness leads to better socio-economic outcomes. Research conducted as part of this report on the long-term impact of free association, free and independent media, and government engagement with citizens (referred to as “diagonal accountability”) finds that these factors are also associated with improved socio-economic outcomes, including life expectancy, years of education, economic growth, reduced infant mortality, and less inequality. This report covers the second objective of the program proposal, the Global Report of the Open Government Partnership (OGP).
