Regulatory Governance in the Open Government

When citizens understand and help to shape the rules that govern society, regulations are more effective, business environments are stronger, and levels of corruption are lower. Since the founding of OGP, many members have made commitments to improve regulatory governance. This paper looks at these OGP reforms, together with data from the World Bank’s Global Indicators of Regulatory Governance (GIRG), to achieve the following goals:

1. Lay out the basic components of an open regulatory process
2. Assess how OGP countries currently fare in implementing those components
3. Identify key areas for improvement
4. Identify innovations across OGP countries
