Abstract

Open government (OG) has been seen as the act of government facilitating transparency and accommodating citizen and stakeholder engagement for public decision-making. Despite the widespread implementation of open government initiatives, what factors influence open government from a country’s perspective remained unclear. This article investigated socio-technical aspects of open government by looking at five factors: e-government development, freedom of press, innovation capabilities, digital skills, and legal adaptability. This study used secondary data from 137 countries to measure the factors influencing OG globally, employing a multiple regression model. Only digital skills are considered less influential in open government initiatives among all the five factors.
