On November 30 and December 01, 2011, IF implemented a two-day training of trainers (TOT) workshop on Iraq’s National Anti-Corruption Strategy (NAS). The workshop was held at the Commission of Integrity headquarters in Baghdad. Two members from each of the 15 Integrity Monitoring Groups attended the training. During the workshop, IMG members recieved expert trainging from the Commission on Itegrity on the following subjects, relevant to Iraq’s National Strategy:

  • General Concepts and terminology used in the NAS
  • Strengths and weakness in the NAS
  • Implementation strategy of the NAS
  • Legal framework of the strategy
  • Laws that need to be issued to supplement and strengthen the strategy
  • Role of each party in the implementation of the strategy (NGOs, government, media, general public, educational institutions, Commission of Integrity).

With this training, IF’s IMGs are empowered to address their local communities about the NAS and how individual citizens, youth, NGOs, and other relevant stakeholders can assist in the implimentation of this strategy and promote key legislation to fight corruption in Iraq.

IF will provide training to Iraqi youth throughout the provinces to farmiliarize them with their role in implimenting the Strategy in the coming month as part of this project.

From November 2-5 2011, IF held a four-day National Meeting in the Erbil province for the 15 Integrity Monitoring Groups (IMGs) established as part of the Provincial Accountability and Governance Project (PAG). A total of 90 participants from across Iraq attended the National Meeting, including officials from the Commission of Integrity, IMG members, provincial officials, and IF staff.  The goal of the National Meeting was to provide participants with a networking opportunity and spur the creation of a formal national network to advocate for good governance and fight corruption at the national level based on a unified, national Agenda for Change.  Over the last two years, IMGs have created and implemented Agendas for Change at the provincial level.  Based on these groups’ individual experiences, participants have agreed on a draft version of a National Agenda for Change during the National Meeting.  In addition to this success, a national network has emerged from the meeting and is currently in the process of registering with the Iraqi Council of Ministers as a legal Iraqi NGO.

Participants also received extensive training on networking and the use and maintanance of the newly created PAG Website during this meeting.
