Digital technology is one of the leading innovations in governance for increased citizen participation. But how does innovation in technology transform governance? Does "opening up" lead to more inclusive development, i.e. making all voices count?

This panel event will unveil micro-level evidence on innovation in governance from both an analytical and practical perspective. Discussion will focus on unpacking the challenges of implementing open data and open governance in a developing country context.
