abstract
Building open government is a challenge shared by all countries. Transparency and accountability in public administration are enhanced by strong public scrutiny based on solid legal provisions for access to information. Investing in consultation and public participation allows governments to tap new sources of policy-relevant ideas, information and resources when making decisions. These efforts, in turn, contribute to building public trust in government, meeting the expectations of civil society, and strengthening civic capacity.

Main Description
This book examines how to build robust legal, institutional and policy frameworks to promote transparency in government , access to information, consultation and public participation in policy-making. It focuses on lessons based on experience from both OECD member and non-member countries in seeking to apply the principles of good governance in practice, and to build effective partnerships between government, citizens and civil society organisations. The book contains papers presented at an international conference, including representatives from 28 countries, held in Ljubljana, Slovenia in May 2002.
