The Government of Georgia will host the 5th OGP Global Summit in Tbilisi, Georgia, on July 17-19, 2018. The Summit will provide an excellent opportunity for leaders from OGP’s 76 participating countries, local governments, and beyond to exchange ideas on how they are making their governments more transparent, accountable, and responsive to citizens.

I have been a freedom of expression/right to information lawyer and activist for over 20 years with a lot of experience working at the international level and in countries in regions around the world. Perhaps my most important area of expertise is in terms of standard-setting where, among other things, I have worked with the four special international mandates on freedom of expression to craft their annual Joint Declarations (https://www.osce.org/fom/66176) for the last 20 years. Love to talk about law and policy issues, especially cutting-edge, innovative ideas.
