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

development of Palestinians and rationalization of government expenses.
