Making Government Operations More Open

Use Transparency to Enforce the Rule of Law

Increasing the transparency of government is necessary but not sufficient. Transparency without accountability is worthless, and merely provides a window into inefficiency (and criminal activity) without ending it. What policy impediments to accountability in government currently exist? The refusal to make investigating and prosecuting all criminal activity--including most notably war crimes--a top priority. Of all perpetrators. On every level. What performance measures are necessary to determine the effectiveness of open government policies? Prosecutions.
