How do you change a democracy? What lessons can be learned from these countries' experiences? Can struggling non-democratic states replicate such significant change without civil war? How does your point of departure influence your tools and mechanisms for change? As global confidence in institutions declines, how can populations guard against complacency, apathy and disengagement?
To answer these questions, we are honoured to welcome the following panelists:
While the principles of open-government are laudable, does it work in practice? What are the realities of fostering transparency for actors and institutions (e.g. media, public service, etc.)? In the real-world of power and incentives, how do money, politics and institutions confront and shape governance and open-government?
To answer these questions and more, we're pleased to welcome esteemed moderator James Baxter, founder of iPolitics, and a fantastic panel!
