Palestine: Rewarding whistleblowers: Coalition for Integrity and Accountability AMAN launches its 2010 Integrity Awards

For the fifth consecutive year, AMAN announces the start of call for applications to its annual Integrity Award competition beginning July 1st and ending on July 31, 2010 for the Public Sector Award, and August 31, 2010 for the Best Research, and Media Awards. Included, are shareholding companies who will compete for the Good Governance Certificate with deadline for application ending on September 20, 2010.

In every society there are individuals who refuse to submit to corrupt people and behavior regardless of the price paid; the Palestinian society is no different. For that, AMAN, took the initiative to symbolically reward these courageous individuals and to grant them recognition in their society as well as introduce them internationally as people who take combating corruption seriously. In that regard, the award will presented to the winners during AMAN’s Transparency Festival held annually in celebration for the International Day against Corruption, which falls on December 9 of each year.

According to Ms. Ghada Zughayar, the Integrity Award is only one method by which AMAN fights corruption hence contributing to the building of a National Integrity System (NIS) which encompasses all the Palestinian society, people and institutions working together to prevent and combat corruption. Our activities and reports are posted on our website sited below, if you wish to learn more about us.

One award is granted per sector each year which constitutes a small monitory value of $1000.00 in addition to the figurative award illustrating AMAN’s emblem of transparency, with the exception of the certificate awarded to the shareholding company where money is not part of the award.

Applications for the awards will be reviewed, evaluated and shortlisted based on a well developed criteria put forth by special technical teams of experts in the various fields. Each team, drafts a report illustrating fulfillment of the application to the criteria as well as an evaluation of the level of importance of the corruption case in question vis-a-vi other applications before presenting it to the Jury or selection committee.
