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.

Presentation sessions are conducted by our Program Consultant Khalil el Hajal ( former head of the municipalities & elected bodies at the Ministry of Interior).
 
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, fourteen distribution ceremonies were held in the North ,Akkar, South, Mount Lebanon and Bekaa governorates.

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 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 1-hour compilation of blunders, extracted from a database 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 on a dedicated website.

 

A partnership with an expert organization, the Maharat Foundation has been established , a researcher has been appointed and a steering committee of  expert members is heading this program that should hopefully come to effect during the 3rd  quarter of 2019.
