Wow, inspiring and extensive efforts at the same time. What are the roles of citizens in each initiative Marin?

Hello Arie

In Colombia we at Datasketch (http://datasketch.co) work on several initiatives for citizen engagement involving open government data:
- The Corruptour<https://corruptour.datasketch.co/> in partnership with Transparency International. A sightseeing tour to talk about the most iconic corruption cases in Bogota and other cities. Some mentions here in french<https://www.la-croix.com/Monde/Ameriques/CorrupTour-voter-conscience-Colombie-2018-03-09-1200919368>.
- During the 2018 FIFA world cup we launched a Social Media Campaign with other organizations in Argentina and Peru to talk about gender equality. Mention here in english<https://farenet.org/news/argentine-equality-group-to-use-world-cup-attention-to-advance-gender-mainstreaming-in-football/?lang=es> and here in spanish<https://www.baenegocios.com/deportes/Los-paises-que-juegan-elMundial-analizados-a-traves-de-los-DD.HH.-y-la-igualdad-20180624-0005.html>.
- We also used open data to talk about femicides<https://www.datasketch.co/p/how-we-used-r-to-raise-alarms-about-feminicides-in-colombia> in Colombia and worked with an NGO to present 20.000 signatures to the ministry of interior.

We could share a few more examples if interested. Best

Hi everyone,

I am studying citizen engagement with open government data to tackle societal problems. I would like to share my preliminary research findings of this topic.

Most academic literature investigates top-down citizen engagement led by the government such as open data hackathons, while, I believe that bottom-up initiatives fully organized by citizens exist in practice. One of my case studies is the use of open election data by Indonesians for providing faster results of the election to society. You can find out about the results of this study here: https://doi.org/10.1145/3209281.3209305

Do you know similar initiatives as such? We can start a discussion on this.

Thank you!
