To do research on what we need to know about opening government, we have to start by learning what it is that we don’t know.
The Governance Laboratory @ NYU is compiling a collection of as-yet unanswered questions, and we’d love to have your input.
Your comments will help us develop a research framework for the field and set our research agenda.
The GovLab Question:
With the ultimate goal of making government more open and effective, what questions make you say:
“If only we knew…”
What are the essential questions that if answered could help accelerate the transformation of how we solve public problems and provide for public goods? What are the issues, from broad categories to specific questions, that need more research attention? Please give us your ideas on what an interdisciplinary research community concerned with those issues should look into next.
Please share your statement and questions by sending it to Stefaan Verhulst (sverhulst at nyu.edu) for inclusion.
