This chapter examines the evolution and implementation of the transparency policy norm at the World Bank. Drawing from primary interviews, archival research, participant observation, and detailed process tracing, it examines how ideational, material and structural pressures created an opening for a significant policy norm shift at the Bank in favor of much greater access to information and ensuring open data practices. The relatively successful implementation outcome, however, was primarily shaped by strategic agency within and outside of the Bank. And as implementation progressed, there was a notable change in the underlying policy norm, expanding to include broader principles of aid accountability, empowerment and effectiveness that constitute the open development movement today.
