Achieving Open-Book Government

Sunlight, former US Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis once observed, is the best disinfectant.

In this ‘theme’, we will be looking at where Government in the United Kingdom could open up information about governmental process, statistics, personnel, and finance, in order to leave citizens better informed about what is done in their name, and where there is scope for a greater degree of responsiveness and accountability.

Articles under the ‘Achieving Open-Book Government’ theme will generally focus on transparency, accountability, openness, citizen engagement and the democratic responsiveness of our public institutions.
