Ohu Open Government

  • Contact person: Dirk Arendt, Sebastian Haselbeck

Mission Statement

The Ohu Open Government is a project platform that fosters constructive and critical debate on topics of openness, transparency, participation and collaboration in politics, administration and society at large.

We seek to discuss ideas on innovative, more transparent mechanisms of governance and communicate them with politics, administration and fellow citizens. Above all, we hope to contribute to further advances in Open Government by developing and implementing new and concrete projects. In order to do so, we bring together the various perspectives of the state, the private sector, civil society and academia to create and advance new methods of administrative collaboration. In addition, the Ohu wants to support existing actors working in the field of Open Government.

Guiding Questions of the Ohu

  • Why Open Government? What are the implications of a more open government for the individual citizen?
  • What strategic potential does Open Government as a new organizational form offer for politicians, administrators, and networks?
  • What is the added value of opening up the political and administrative processes?
  • How do the state’s legitimacy and capacity change in the light of active citizen participation?
  • What are the opportunities and challenges of large-scale e-participation? How can it be effectively integrated into our political system?
  • What are the risks and opportunities of Open Data, from an economic, legal, social and political perspective?
  • Which legislation exists in Germany and what are the developments in information freedom, collaboration and citizen participation?
