People-Powered Anti-corruption: Global & Local Perspectives on Corruption Fighting with Open Data and Technology

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Current anti-corruption initiatives often involve promoting transparency and getting more information into the public domain. However, there have been fewer systematic efforts by the anti-corruption community to improve uptake of, and responsiveness to, this newly available information. Our session will address global and local approaches to achieving better accessibility and use of corruption data. Getting the right information to professional users inside governments will give law enforcement new opportunities to lead investigations and prosecute. Meanwhile, ensuring professional anti-corruption analysts, activists and journalists have the right information and skills will empower them to work more effectively with reform champions in the government, ultimately resulting in greater accountability, institutional reform and better delivery of services. We would like the session to draw on experiences of new data and tech-driven initiatives from diverse sectors and geographies. We want to make this workshop as participatory and lively as possible, hearing examples of successes but also reality checks on the constraints of fighting corruption with  data. We especially welcome those who have experience using open data to fight corruption at the local level, to inform the development of other local and global initiatives. We would like to hear from law enforcement bodies, from data crunchers, from infomediaries, from journalists, from civil society how data could be better released, accessible, and used, and how technology could facilitate those efforts.
