The Open Budgets Blog is thinking of running a series of interviews with prominent government budget activists. After giving some background on their work and their organization, we could ask questions like the following:

  1. What was your first moment of activism? What moved you to get involved?
  2. Why do you do this work? What motivates you?
  3.  What’s the biggest challenge in this work? For you? For your organization?
  4. What would change the citizen-government power balance in your country?
  5. How long will you keep doing it? What are your career plans?
  6. What are you reading at the moment?
  7. Who are your heroes?

 PLEASE LET US KNOW

  • Would you be interested in reading something like this?
  • Would you be prepared to give time to be interviewed yourself?
  • Which of the proposed questions are most interesting to you?
  • Which other questions should be included?
