In efforts to increase openness, transparency and participation,
governments around the world have drafted Open Government policies and
established Open Data as an integral part of modern administration. Open
data and public sector information has been held out as a powerful
resource to support good governance, improve public services, engage
citizens, and stimulate economic growth. The promises have been high,
but the results have been modest so far and more and there are more and
more critical sounds.  Policies have not resulted in gaining the desired
benefits and implementations have been criticized for its technology
orientation and neglecting the user perspective. These policies and
implementations are now under scrutiny, with important questions to be
asked about: whether the results justify the efforts; about how
different outcomes from open data can be secured; and who is benefiting
from open data in different countries and contexts?
