Principles
Open government is the governing doctrine which holds that citizens have the right to access the documents and proceedings of the government to allow for effective public oversight. In its broadest construction it opposes reason of state and other considerations, which have tended to legitimize extensive state secrecy. The origins of open government arguments can be dated to the time of the
European Enlightenment
The contemporary doctrine of open government finds its strongest advocates in those non-governmental organizations keen to counter what they see as the inherent tendency of government to lapse, whenever possible, into secrecy.
Advocates of open government often argue that civil society, rather than government legislation, offers the best route to more transparent administration
Open Government Partnership or OGP is an international organization promoting multilateral initiative and seeking strong commitments from participating government institutions to promote transparency, increase civic participation, fight corruption, and harness new technologies to make government more open, effective, and accountable. The OGP Launching event was on September 20, 2011
Open government
may be understand as a "
work in progress"
governing and administrative doctrine (or approach) who promotes better governance, based on three -and maybe four - normative principles, who (mostly, but not necessarily implies the use of ICT advances) oriented to change the way interaction occurs between government and its citizens.
The Open-Government movement has come. Around the world, its proponents and advocates are claiming to work and think on it, on its rationales and instruments, in order to define its boundaries, to shape and configure it in a new approach (or a new relational model) between the rulers, government (and its public sector) and citizens (Ramírez-Alujas, 2011a, 2011b)
A "work in progress" doctrine
Open Government has come...
It is clear that OG concept
may not
be
understand simply as the using of open data for governance, and
must not
be use as a new way to define or understand innovations in transparency and accountability policies
Cesar Calderón (2013) remind us that "In order to avoid any misconception, it is necessary to make a clear distinction between '
e-government'
(also known as 'e-administration' or) with the '
Open Government
' concept.
Clarifications
First: open government is not the same as e-government
When we talking about
e-government
we refer to the use of ICT and its tools to the public sector procedures for public service delivery. E-government is the application of technology to improve communication capabilities and to make more efficient governments.
With
e-government (egov)
, we are not talking about changes in values.
e-government
don't reconsider
the aims, objectives and rationales underlying public administration and make things work.
For e-government,
efficiency
(as well as with in new public management's doctrine) still remains is a
predominantly value
e-government makes public service delivery
easier
,
faster
and
cheaper

e-government
don't transforms society,
simply it improve procedures for service delivery or proposes new ones based on ICT
e-gov is public sector's technification who favors positive impacts in the governing institutions and citizens.
Several dimension and factors influence the definition of
e-Governance
. The word “electronic” in the term e-Governance implies technology driven governance.


Through the
e-Governance
, the government services will be made available to the citizens in a convenient, efficient and
transparent
manner.
Generally four basic models are available: Government to Customer (Citizen), Government to Employees, Government to Government and Government to Business
e-governance
E-Governance
is the application of information and communication technology (ICT) for delivering government services, exchange of information communication transactions, integration of various stand-alone systems and services between
Government-to-Citizens
(G2C),
Government-to-Business
(G2B),
Government-to-Government
( G2G) as well as back office processes and interactions within the entire government framework.

Clarifications
Secondly: e-governance t is more than e-government
Other administrative doctrines are for example cameralism, new public management, etc. As an administrative doctrine, shares some normative principles and objectives with another similar approaches (mainly e-government and collaborative governance)
E-government
is one-way communication
protocol whereas
E-governance
is two-way
communication protocol.
As with e-government, in defining e-governance we are still talking about service delivery, and about the (predominant) use of ICT to improve service delivery. Nevertheless, with e-governance concept, the focus is on ICT-based interaction between different economic and social actors, instead of (and not only of) improving public services.

OK, we understand now the differences between
e-government and
e-governance, an the importance of open data into those relations, but:

What is open government really means?
What difference does it make?
Based on its principles,
OG is something different from egov and something more than e-governance

About
OGP Open
Government
Partnership
Prominent among these NGOs are bodies like
Transparency International
or the
Open Society Institute
. They advocate the implementation of norms of openness and transparency across the globe and argue that such standards are vital to the ongoing prosperity and development of democratic societies.

Transparency
Participation
Active Collaboration
Accountability
There are rules, regulations and mechanisms in place that call upon government actors to justify their actions, act upon criticisms or requirements made of them, and accept responsibility for failure to perform with respect to laws or commitments.
Governments embrace the importance of providing citizens with open access to technology, the role of new technologies in driving innovation, and the importance of increasing the capacity of citizens to use technology.
Governments seek to mobilize citizens to engage in public debate, provide input, and make contributions that lead to more responsive, innovative and effective governance.
Information on government activities and decisions is open, comprehensive, timely freely available to the public and meets basic open data standards (e.g. raw data, machine readability).
Technology & Innovation
Active collaboration means that citizens, civil society and governments participate and work together in a participative process. Governments need to proactively approach and engage citizens and support civil society in order to increase their capacity to participate.
Discussion
Clarifications
Third: Open Government is more than Open Data for improving governance
OG (>) open data4(+)gov
Open data is data that can be freely used, reused and redistributed by anyone – subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and sharealike

open data
What is Open Data - An Animation (Ireland)

Available on the web (whatever format) but with an open licence, to be Open Data
Available as machine-readable structured data (e.g. excel instead of image scan of a table)
as (2) plus non-proprietary format (e.g. CSV instead of excel)

All the above plus, Use open standards from W3C (RDF and SPARQL) to identify things, so that people can point at your stuff
All the above, plus: Link your data to other people’s data to provide context
The use of open data to improve governance is of a paramount importance for open government initiatives, since one of the main mechanisms in fighting corruption, empower citizens and be government activities more transparent are open data strategies.

Open data is a fundamental piece to take principles of open government into practice, but it is just a way to achieve it. Open data strategies not comprise the entire OG's toolkit.
1. Is the "Open Government movement" an inevitable feature of contemporary world? Is Hillary Clinton's assertion a valuable insight about a very possible future?

3. Is it possible in contemporary world to achieve constantly progress in economic and social wellbeing without taking into account transparency and accountability demands and without using ICT and open data to empower citizens in policy-making and in the monitoring of government?
6. May the implementation of "open government" into the Arab World "make a big difference"? May be a more accurate and affective approach in improving contemporary governance?

2. Is it possible that the implementation of open government initiatives favors the origin or rebirth of political conflicts and be the cause of regime's instabilities episodes?
4. If an Arab country has positively high economic prosperity levels and high levels of happiness (subjective wellbeing) of its inhabitants. May we consider the implementation of open government strategies as an unnecessary task? If transparency and participation are not requested by citizens, Is open government a nonsense and useless approach?
5. Is it possible to broadly apply open government initiatives into the Arab World? What kind of strategies may be first best implemented? How and why?
Thanks. Muchas gracias

1.Achieve Eligibility

The first step towards full OGP participation is meeting the OGP eligibility criteria. In order to be eligible to participate in OGP, governments must demonstrate a minimum level of commitment to open government principles in four key areas (Fiscal Transparency, Access to Information, Income and Asset Disclosures, and Citizen Engagement).

A country is eligible to join the OGP if it meets those criteria measured by objective governance indicators using public data sources. To participate in OGP, countries must score at least 75% of the total possible points available to them.
