Expand the Expert Advisory Panel to include greater civil society representation
Why the contribution is important
There is not enough evidence that the Expert Advisory Panel (EAP) has adequately fulfilled its role as a forum to enable regular multi-stakeholder consultation on OGP implementation. While the EAP was involved in the development and implementation of the 2016-2018 action plan, there is no evidence that the EAP is seeking out the views of other CSOs or the general public when conducting its activities. This goes against the co-creation spirit of OGP .
All OGP Independent Review Mechanism reports include five recommendations about the next OGP action planning cycle. Governments are expected to respond to these recommendations.
