The Developing World Institute for Good Public Governance (IMODEV) organize in the form online and also at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, the 5th Academic Days on Open Government and Digital Challenges. These Academic days aim to bring together all of academia concerned with issues related to open government and digital issues by favoring a broad and multidisciplinary dimension.

Announcement

November 3 & 4, 2020 – Paris, France

Argument

On 3 and 4 November 2020, IMODEV organize in the form online and also at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, the “5th Academic Days on Open Government and Digital Challenges, 5e Journées universitaires sur les enjeux des Gouvernements Ouverts et du numérique”. Under the direction of Irene Bouhadana and William Gilles, this international conference will be the 28th edition of a series of IMODEV international conferences on Information Society Law and Governance.

This 5th edition is the continuation of the first fourth Academic days on Open Government Issues, held in November 2017, 2018 and 2019, and in December 2016, during the week dedicated to the Open Government Global Summit, hosted by France, as chair of Open Government Partnership. These Academic days aim to bring together all of academia concerned with issues related to open government and digital issues by favoring a broad and multidisciplinary dimension.

One of the goals of the open government process is to promote greater transparency and encourage citizen participation and collaboration in government decision-making, but also to promote government accountability. In this perspective, it is important to emphasize the role of citizens, civil society and stakeholders in decision-making to improve government policies.

Since the 2nd edition, the Academic days expressly refer to “digital issues” in the title of the international conference, as digitalization is a major issue for open governments in the information society. Thus, speakers can deliver speeches focused on open government issues, on digital issues or concerning both open government and digital issues

The Origins of the “Academic Days on Open Government & Digital Issues”

Since 2011, experiences of member countries of OGP have shown that, although civil society is largely associated with the process of open governments, the academic community has not been adequately consulted. It is important to emphasize that the university community must be part of the open government process. The concept of “Academic Days” was never experienced in previous events of the OGP. By hosting this event, Irene Bouhadana and William Gilles decided to organize for the first time a scientific congress dedicated to open government and digital issues, and willing bring together academics – regardless their disciplines – to enable the discussion of these issues through a scientific approach. The tradition has continued since then.

Academic Days aim to bring together all academics interested in these matters, including nationals of a non- OGP country. The underlying objective is to build a university doctrine on open-government and digital issues: IMODEV, as an international network of researchers and academics, and the University Paris1 Panthéon-Sorbonne already are working fully in favor of promoting these themes.

An Interdisciplinary and International Event

The event aims to bring together everyone who seeks to reflect on the opening of governments and digital issues through a scientific approach.

The event is multidisciplinary and seeks to associate law, political science, economics, administration, mathematics, computer sciences, social sciences, history, sociology, environmental sciences, arts and all other subjects or areas that may be related to these issues.

Due to its transversal and multidisciplinary nature, space for debates on governmental and open digital issues with representatives from different countries is encouraged and opened up.

An Event Open to Youth, Students and Young Researchers: Transmitting to the Leaders of Tomorrow

Moreover, these days are intended to also be open to young researchers (PhDs, PhD students, master students). The intention is to involve the younger generations to the challenges of tomorrow regarding open government and digital issues. The young researchers can apply to be part of the organization and the moderation of roundtables or workshops, under the supervision of a senior researcher.
