Civil Servants 101: NAMAZEJ Municipal Police
Launched on November 2, 2015- Lebanon

 

This program aims at developing the human factor in public institutions to better serve citizens. As a first step, CV101 is addressing a public body with a high level of interaction with citizens : The Municipal Police.

 

Following the protocol signed in October 2014 by the foundation and OMSAR (The Office of Minister of State for Administrative Reform), we designed, edited and printed the NAMAZEJ handbook that lists basic tasks which are not properly addressed by the municipal police agents. This user- friendly and illustrated handbook is meant to be distributed in person to 2000 + municipal police members, during introductory sessions in all Lebanese governorates (mouhafazats) under the direct auspices of their respective governors.

 

Billboard campaigns ,or SMS bursts, are being gradually launched after the handbook distribution in each governorate in order to raise citizens’ awareness, and to also encourage them to download it on their smart devices (phones & tablets). Donations in kind for this initiative have been secured from ALBA (handbook illustrations), l’Annonce s.a.r.l and Pikasso s.a.l (printing & billboard campaign).

 

Since program launch in 2015, ten distribution ceremonies were held in the Akkar governorate, the Sidon and Zahrani federations of Municipalities and the Municipal federations of  Zahle , Jezzine ,Matn, Chouf - Chahhar ,upper Matn and Amioun. On October 26 , 2017, a joint session for Tripoli and Mina Municipalities was held at Tripoli’s Naufal palace in presence of 140 municipal police members. More than 960 agents and Municipality Presidents have received, to date, a copy of the NAMAZEJ handbook (see attached photo gallery).

Ethics and Civic Values in LIVE Reports
June 6, 2016- Lebanon

 

When based on misleading or misinformed content, live news segments often carries a negative impact nationwide . The disrespect of Ethics & civic values affects media quality, citizen's values & perception of State.

 

This targeted educational program is designed to inject civic and ethical substance into the news reported live from local radio and TV stations. Targeting all Lebanese reporters, the ECVLR could become a tool to induce a positive attitude change in the Lebanese public towards national values.

 

A 2-hour compilation of blunders, extracted from a database of the last 5 years of TV news coverage, in addition to commentaries by subject matter experts is in the making. All Lebanese reporters will be invited to attend training sessions based on these commented compilations that will afterwards be made available to students in media & journalism.

 

A partnership with an expert organization, the Samir Kassir Foundation (SKeyes) has been established , a researcher has been appointed and a steering committee of 5 expert members is heading this program that should hopefully come to effect during the 3rd  quarter of 2017.

Anti –Corruption Hotline: LALAC Program

This non-academic program provides an unprecedented fighting vehicle against cases of corruption that citizens or corporations have witnessed or are victims of. Tools and methodology include a dedicated hotline, expert advice, and complaints processing through various law offices, state bodies, pressure groups and possible media whistleblowing.

Most importantly, it shows the high rate of cooperation displayed by Public Institutions in addressing complaints that were relayed by the Program, evidencing that a rightful & well prepared complaint does lead to results; a source of hope for the future and further motivation for reinstating a similar initiative.

 

LRF has provided input on methodology in addition to a financial contribution; this initiative is also funded by the EU and CIPE.
