The Future of Open and Digital Public Administration
15 February 2018
16:00

Amidst complex social processes and new economic challenges, the need to ensure that government authorities’ work is done openly represents an important challenge. This is especially necessary at the regional and municipal levels in Russia. Citizens are increasingly voicing demands to be able to interact directly with government bodies. Open government is gradually transforming into an open state — one which is closer to people and which makes use of new digital technologies. Concepts like ‘government in your pocket’ and ‘single window’ are now leading global trends. Large volumes of open data serve as a basis for interaction and a foundation for digital government. What image of the future does such a system have to offer in terms of the next political cycle? What are the challenges facing regional authorities in this respect? What does the federal government need to do to transition to new cycle?
