2013 was another very active year for the International Budget Partnership, from the release of the Open Budget Survey 2012 in late January to the launch of important new research in our book Open Budgets: The Political Economy of Transparency, Participation, and Accountability to the second annual Open Government Partnership Summit in November. Throughout the year we’ve catalogued, discussed, and analyzed these activities and many more on our Open Budgets Blog. We’ve also hosted guest bloggers who have written on various topics such as participatory budgeting around the world and new government budget portals. Below you will find links to the top five most popular blog posts from 2013. Many thanks to all of the blog authors for their hard work, and we look forward to another successful year in 2014!
