  • Scotlandís Open Government Action Plan 2021-25

    Created: 29/03/2022

    Scotland’s Open Government Action Plan 2021-25, has been drawn up with Scotland’s Open Government Network - a coalition of citizens and civil society organisations. It will focus on involving people in decisions on making data open and accessible across key areas of government and understanding how public finances work.

    It will also allow people to participate in decision-making on tackling the climate emergency and improving health and social care.

    A key first step in this Action Plan is the publication of the Institutionalising Participatory and Deliberative Democracy (IPDD) Working Group report.

    It was set up to respond to the need for new infrastructure and processes to make sure people can routinely be involved in government decisions and to set up new Citizens’ Assemblies.

    The Working Group recommendations include identifying how participatory processes have impact, independence and accountability; and providing guidance on how to design and run Citizens’ Assemblies.
