How To Establish Trust With Citizens Using Open Government Data
It has long been established that when executed correctly and at the appropriate time, self-disclosure is one of the hallmarks of building a positive relationship. Studies have shown that sharing information about ourselves is more likely to build greater cooperation, liking and trust with others. This is true whether the relationship is one between friends, an employer with their employees, or even a government with its citizens.

The movement towards open data first began in the US and the UK, and is now expanding rapidly to cities and communities all over the world. The success of these new practices has sparked the development of new technologies and programs in support of openness and transparency that are now being implemented by many different organizations, industries, and even governments. These technologies were designed to make the publication of data on the internet quick and easy, and accessible by anyone, anywhere, anytime.
