Data, Public Goods, Public Interest and Good Governance
Multiple actors and several methods for the transparency and good governance
in April 2019 from 9:00 to 13:30 at Mozsar Coffee (Budapest, Nagymező u. 21.)
A conference organized by the CRCB with the support of commonfare.net and the EU
Citizens, grassroots initiatives and movements, as well as NGOs, think tanks and institutes have stepped up to support good governance from the bottom up. In the conference we would like to present several actors and several activities which have different professional background and they use different methods to achieve the same goal and we want to create a forum for exchange of ideas on experiences, barriers and good practices. How can the data disclosure, the empirical analysis based on hard data, or the data-driven journalism help to increase the transparency, promote the integrity in state institutions and consequently contribute to good governance.
