The World Bank's Citizen Engagement in Rulemaking


The World Bank’s Citizen Engagement in Rulemaking (CER) is a database of indicators that assess the degree to which rulemaking processes are transparent and participatory in 185 countries. The information below was compiled from responses to AidData’s 2016 GDA Snap Poll, which asked public, private and civil society leaders to answer 11 questions about whether, when, and why they use governance data in their work. A total of 59 participants to the snap poll indicated familiarity with the CER.
