Making Open Development Inclusive
Lessons from IDRC Research
Drawing on ten years of empirical work and research, analyses of how open development has played out in practice.
A decade ago, a significant trend toward openness emerged in international development. "Open development" can describe initiatives as disparate as open government, open health data, open science, open education, and open innovation. The theory was that open systems related to data, science, and innovation would enable more inclusive processes of human development. This volume, drawing on ten years of empirical work and research, analyzes how open development has played out in practice.
