I lead policy, advocacy strategy, and related investments for the global Government Transparency initiative of Omidyar Network.
This blog does not represent the views of Omidyar Network and is my personal blog, but mostly on open government issues. I also post on Twitter @martintisne
Before joining ON, I was founding director of the Transparency and Accountability Initiative, a collaborative of leading funders committed to strengthening democracy by empowering citizens to hold their governing institutions to account. At Transparency and Accountability Initiative, I helped found the Open Government Partnership, a multilateral initiative aimed at securing commitments from governments to promote transparency, increase civic participation, and harness new technologies for more effective governance. Previously, I founded the aid transparency campaign Publish What You Fund, helped launch Integrity Watch Afghanistan, and was a founding staff member at Tiri.
I started working on open government in 2001 working for the Open Society Institute in Budapest, where I researched the impact of anti-corruption assistance in Southeast Europe.
