Hi all,

I have a proposal in the topic of transparency and how are
organizations working to make governments more transparent. The case
of Tunisia and the group OpenGovTN, which is an horizontal group of
citizens without any legal structure but including more than 30
members from the National Constitution Assembly (which include 217
members in total) in addition to many ministers and officials from the
current government.

You can find here a brief review of one year of activism and advocacy
of the group http://prezi.com/vmphf2byxhag/opengovtn-english/
