Agile, data-driven and participatory government

Open-government data coupled with primacy of data-driven decision-making to increase the understanding about the performance of policies and services. The principle of responsible data use whereby access to government data is given for research to counter issues of biases against “digital invisibles” (people not represented in government data), and an increase of citizen engagement with online tools to strengthen the quality, trust and acceptance of governments. This creates an incentivization of government and public for participatory governance, and more collaboration in policy-making and evaluation.
