We will talk more fully about Open Government and Government 2.0 in a few weeks, but I did want to raise (in the nature of transparency) and also as it is very germane to this module, that Ireland joined the global Open Government Partnership earlier this year. The Department of Public Reform and Expenditure officially signed a memorandum of understanding and has subsequently employed Transparency International Ireland to carry out a public consultation to engage with Civil Society. I provide this as background and invite you to follow along. How do we effectively cultivate engagement between wider society and the state when it comes to reform movements? What can be learned from the Seanád referendum experience?
