About the Book

Opening the Government of Canada: The Federal Bureaucracy in the Digital Age  examines how the federal government has adapted to the digital age from the mid-2000s to present day. The book uncovers a striking tension between the bureaucracy’s tradition of closed government, and the dictates of governing in an age defined by open, networked technologies. The book speaks to broader questions on the effectiveness and democratic legitimacy of our federal government.

 

 

Clarke will be joined on stage by Luc Juillet (Associate Professor, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Ottawa) and Taki Sarantakis (President of the Canada School of Public Service).
