An important part of AMANís strategy for combating corruption is not limited to local initiatives/activities but includes AMANís involvement in activities on international and regional levels. One of AMANís main objectives under programme Capacity Building was the completion of TIís accreditation process to become Transparency Palestine. The Coalition of AMAN is currently the Palestinian National Chapter for Transparency International (TI), and is acting as the contact organization for regional transparency chapters, and other similar organizations working in the areas of transparency, accountability, and integrity. Other AMAN activities include active participation of its members in TIís Annual General Meetings and regional meetings for the past four years. These members have also presented papers at these global meeting on issues pertaining to Palestinian corruption. Currently, AMAN is actively participating in the network for the Middle East and Near Africa (MENA) to make an Arabic adaptation to TIís Sourcebook and efforts on the Publicís Right to Access of Information. AMAN is also preparing to complete the ďInput FormĒ for TIís Global Corruption Report 2006.
