WEBINARS with CANDIDATES SHORTLISTED
for the OGP STEERING COMMITTEE
Alianza Regional por la Libre Expresión e Información invites you to participate in a series of Webinars with the 16 candidates shortlisted for the Steering Committee of the Open Government Partnership.

The Selection Committee selected 16 finalists from a long list of 47 nominations received by the OGP Support Unit. Six new civil society members of the OGP Steering Committee will be announced in April. You can find details of the selection process here.
