Training Chinese Officials on Open Government

Here is a new report that will be used to train Chinese officials on best practices for using websites to increase government transparency and encourage public participation.

Entitled “China eGovernment Development Index Report 2013”, the report was completed by Mei Gechlik, Director of Stanford Law School’s China Guiding Cases Project (“CGCP”), and her team of more than 30 members, including SLS students and many CGCP members. They spent the past two years assessing e-government development in China at the request of local governments in China. Findings were reported earlier by China’s People’s Daily (see here).

The CEDI Report can now be downloaded for free online at ​​.
