Independent Joint Anti-Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC)
MEC (www.mec.af) was created after the need for independent monitoring and evaluation of anti-corruption efforts was identified at a series of international conferences. MEC is wholly independent of the Government of Afghanistan, and receives financial support from the international community. This independence ensures that MEC is capable of carrying out its mandate in a transparent manner without undue influence. The governing Committee, which is made up of three Afghan and three international anti-corruption experts, meets in Afghanistan quarterly, normally resulting in the setting of recommendations and benchmarks. MEC issues regular reports every six months, with interim reports being issued on an ad hoc basis. The Committee is supported by a technical secretariat of national and international staff, and this position would be within the secretariat’s growing Research Unit.
Support Research Unit by conducting primary and secondary research through desk studies and collecting qualitative data through interviews.
