The Open Society Monitoring Index was launched at UCT on 12 August. The OSMI is a longitudinal research instrument developed by DARU in collaboration with the Open Society Foundation for South Africa. The index is designed to gauge the level of openness in South Africa. Openness in a society refers to the free flow of information, inclusive, accountable and responsive government institutions and the existence of the rule of law.
