Birzeit students take lead in public accountability program

Ula Quzmar, Nirvana Younis, Saja Maharmeh, and Mais Hameed, four public administration majors at Birzeit University, recently took part in the The Youth Monitor program, which introduces young men and women to principles and values of integrity, transparency, social accountability, and anti-corruption. 

The students helped produce several TV episodes with Maan TV, such as “Appointments with Exception,” “Whistleblower Protection,” and “Safe Medical Waste Disposal.” In these episodes, the students questioned several officials on central topics that affect Palestinian society. 

The Youth Monitor is carried out with the support of the Palestinian Youth Association for Leadership and Rights Activation ( PYALARA) and the Coalition for Accountability and Integrity - AMAN.
