COMUNICADO: Perú debe respetar su compromiso de impulsar el gobierno abierto

Four years of Peruvian OGP: everything continues being the same.

Javier Casas[1]

In the last four years, no relevant change in the Peruvian public management has occurred due to participation in the global Open Government Partnership[2]   (OGP). The partnership was expected to bring improvements in the process to make policy, to help achieve the predicted results more efficiently, and to help apply the changes in a sustainable manner. Nothing has been verified with the OGP and the major challenge continues to improve the quality of public management. Sigue leyendo

Citizen participation is one of the four principles of the global Open Government Partnership (OGP). The other three are transparency, accountability and technology. When Peru decided in 2011 to sign the partnership, this decision was assumed by all the experts as a “second breath” for the transparency in the country, understood in a broad and comprehensive manner.

Only 30% of OGP Action Plans Include RTI Reform / Sólo 30% de los Planes de Acción de la Iniciativa de Gobierno Abierto incluyen reformas al acceso a la información

Only 30% of OGP Action Plans Include RTI Reform. (Inglés)

In terms of the legal framework for RTI, no State should be allowed to remain in the OGP unless it is prepared to make a clear, time bound commitment  to protect this fundamental human right and core OGP value. For States that have legislation, clear minimum benchmarks for the quality of their RTI framework should be set, and incorporated into the ongoing process of review of country Action Plans, with a view to promoting improvement over time. This will not only promote good performance on this key governance issue, but it will also enhance the credibility of the whole OGP process.

En términos del marco jurídico para el derecho al acceso a la información, a ningún Estado debe permitírsele permanecer dentro de la Iniciativa para el Gobierno Abierto, a menos que esté dispuesto a asumir un compromiso claro y con plazos determinados  para proteger este derecho y valor fundamental de la Iniciativa. Los Estados que cuentan con legislación deben incorporar a sus Planes de Acción puntos de referencia mínimos y claros para mejorar la calidad de sus respectivos marcos jurídicos .  Esto no sólo promoverá el buen desempeño de los países en este tema clave de la gobernanza, sino que también aumentará la credibilidad de la propia Iniciativa.
