AMAN developed its strategic plan (2013-2015). The core program heavily draws from this strategy

and is in alignment with the national anti-corruption plan, and that of the international community

specifically those with agenda’s of promoting good governance, rule of law, anti-corruption and

concepts of integrity, transparency and accountability.

AMAN will continue throughout this phase building on partnerships, coalitions, think tanks, and

empowering Palestinians to combat corruption. It will always build relationships that are based on

mutual respect bringing down defensiveness of certain target groups and engaging them actively in

the national efforts of promoting integrity, towards building a national integrity system and combating

corruption.

Palestine is no exception to corruption for the enablers of that are many including the Israeli

occupation, an internal division, poverty, incoming donor funds, unstable political and economic

systems as well as underdeveloped judicial, and legislative systems. The Coalition for Accountability

and Integrity (AMAN) agrees with many who have extensive experience in combating corruption, that

such an effort must be a parallel process of bottom-up and top-down. Furthermore, AMAN believes in

creating a large popular platform for supporting national efforts in promoting values of integrity and

principles of transparency and systems of accountability (ITA); combating corruption and towards

building a national integrity system. In turn all these efforts should increase the stability of the country

and legitimacy of the reconstruction process, leading to increased social, economic, and political

development of Palestinians and rationalization of government expenses.

Main Objective: This phase of AMAN’s work (2013-2016) aims to contribute to the building of an

effective national integrity system as a preventive strategy for combating corruption.

Specific Objectives:

to promote integrity and combating corruption.

promoting a work environment in public institutions that would prevent proliferation of corruption
