The IFW allowed Meghan to participate at the international Conference for e-Democracy and Open Government (CeDEM14), which brings together e-democracy, e-participation and open government specialists working in academia, politics, government and business to critically analyse the innovations, issues, ideas and challenges in the networked societies of the digital age.
For this year's conference, Meghan Cook conducted a workshop on Maximizing the Public Value of Open Government: A Workshop on CTG’s Strategic Planning Approach. In addition, Meghan presented an accepted management paper entitled Open Data Planning Activities: Emerging Practices from a Public Value Approach.
