Changes in society, a view from the new law

A coordination meeting was held at Amman in early October. NGOs and international organizations which have conducted support activities in Iraq. JEN also joined the meeting.

Topic of the conference is about the laws relating to NGO which has been recently revised.  In Iraq, the follow-up is required every time because the NGO law has been changed every few years.

A person from the Iraqi government who is in charge of NGO also explained the new law this time. The meeting is in English, however, sometimes in Arabic when the debate gets heated.


What the person from Iraqi government emphasized was that “civil society” like NGO is new for Iraq, hence we must proceed little by little.

Recovering security in Iraq, in the meeting, we could feel the attitude which aims at building relationship properly between the Iraqi government and NGO.
