Our mission

Open Political Economy Network (OPEN) creatively harnesses the insights of a diverse international network of thinkers and experts to inform, engage and influence policymakers and global debate on openness issues. We are committed to producing independent, rigorous and accessible research and analysis.

Our mission is to break down barriers. Barriers between countries and within them. Barriers that privilege some and deny opportunities to others. Barriers that entrench established ways of doing things at the expense of new, different and better ones.

We believe in being open to the world, open to everyone in society, and open to the future and all its possibilities for progress.
