    As lead co-chair of the Open Government Partnership (OGP), Georgia will host the 5th OGP Global Summit in Tbilisi, Georgia, on July 17-19, 2018.

    Representatives from OGP’s 90 national and local participants — heads of state and governments, ministers, public servants, members of parliament, local authorities, civil society representatives, international foundations, researchers, academia and journalists — will gather in Tbilisi to promote their achievements and discuss the challenges in upholding the principles of open government.

    The OGP 2018 Global Summit will focus on civic engagement, fighting against corruption, and public service delivery. The Global Legal Empowerment Network will be promoting access to justice and training civil society and government representatives on how to include meaningful access to justice commitments in OGP Plans.

    The objectives of the Summit are to promote peer learning, inspire OGP reformers to raise the level of ambition, and push the open government agenda forward to address new challenges and improve the lives of citizens around the world.
