Reinforcing knowledge of the Act on the Openness of Government Activities within the government sector
Knowledge of the Act on the Openness of Government Activities to be enhanced within the government sector
In association with the Finnish Institute of Public Management (HAUS), the Ministry of Justice will arrange two courses each year on the Act on the Openness of Government Activities. In addition, government-organised training on the Act was held in winter 2017–2018 in association with the University of Helsinki, and it was possible to take this as online training. The government digital learning environment eOppiva also provides an opportunity to expand the amount of online training in the future.
At the end of 2018, a simple checklist on the Act on the Openness of Government Activities will also be compiled for those involved in drafting, and examples will be highlighted of how publicity and openness benefit law drafting and the legitimacy of decision-making.
The scope for giving greater attention in secondary schooling to the principles of the Act will be investigated by the end of the action programme period (June 2019).
