We are pleased to convene this Call for Proposals for a new Open Government Partnership Academic Conference on Open Government 2017 (#OGPAcademy17) at the Americas Regional Meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

 The Open Government Partnership, together with GIGAPP (the Research Group in Government,Administration and Public Policy) is seeking to inform practices of open government around the world. This session will enable researchers, academics, public officials, civil society organizations and think tanks  to interact and discuss cutting-edge research topics in open government, transparency, citizen participation, and accountability.

 #OGPAcademy17 wants to be a multidisciplinary event, based on high academic standards, focus on the creation and dissemination of new approaches and knowledge in subjects of interest for the Open Government Partnership. This is an effort to consolidate research themes, subjects and networks to contribute to the conceptual and practical development of open government.

Selection of proposals

A multidisciplinary selection committee will evaluate all proposals of the event. The evaluation criteria are:

  • Potential contribution to knowledge

  • Practical and empirical relevance

Selection will emphasize on empirical data over essentially theoretical works. Diversity in terms of geography, discipline, themes and gender will be considered, keeping in mind that quality is the main criteria. Consideration will also be given to those proposals that involve the use of data created by the Open Government Partnership (Independent Review Mechanism reports, OGP Explorer, etc.).

Additionally, in order to ensure diversity from a variety of backgrounds, practitioners are encouraged to submit papers featuring case studies along the themes above.

Working Groups

Once the call for papers is closed, the selection committee would create working groups according to themes and languages of all proposals accepted


Proposals can be submitted in Spanish, English and Portuguese.
