Reporting on Open Government and Transparency – Survey

I’m conducting some global research into media views of open government, transparency and accountability and need to get as many responses from journalists as possible – especially outside the US and EU.

This is an independent project but the conclusions will be presented to the Open Government Partnership summit in London in October to representatives of more than 50 countries. You can find out more about the OGP here:

Ideally, we want to point journalists to the very brief survey attached – it will take only a few minutes and will greatly inform the research. All survey data will be anonymous – it asks for some information solely so we can judge how wide a spread we have geographically and by platform and role.

Here is a link to the survey:

Here is a blog post which explains the project:

Any way in which you can help circulate this survey to international or local journalists would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks
