Abstract Chapter 6 introduces open government policies and initiatives in Costa Rica. It provides a detailed analysis of the country’s extensive legal framework that establishes the basis for an open, transparent and participatory government and provides concrete recommendations to strengthen this framework including via the drafting of a Law on Access to Information. It highlights the importance of the Inter-Sectoral Commission for Digital Government and of the Digital Government Technical Secretariat for the country’s open government agenda and points to the successful exploitation of the value added of open government data by means of the centralised open data portal and the organisation of hackathon events.
