Point-Iraq is a unique international event that is hosted by Tawasoul Organization for Youth Empowerment every year, and it aims to strengthening the role of civil society organizations in the use of modern technology and media in the field of supporting democracy and promoting transparency and freedom of media. The conference in its original version is held annually in Europe (Sarajevo, the capital of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina) by Action SEE network that is active in the Balkans.
Implementation of Point-Conference Iraq for the third year
The Conference will be held for two consecutive days on the hall of The Station Building, where there will be more than 150 young activists who will attend the conference from different governorates of Iraq, taking into consideration the measurements of health, safety and social distancing.
Because of Corona Epidemic, this year, the conference will be limited to the attendees from Iraq only, as the conference will provide an electronic space for the audience to attend the sessions online through "ZOOM" application.
On the first day, the activities of the Conference will include holding a group of sessions, where a group of specialized speakers will be called on to discuss the themes to be covered, including: Assessment of Ministerial Curriculum Implementation Indicators, Economic Reforms File, Communication Channels between citizens and the Parliamentary Council, Elections and Protests.
The activities of the second day will be dedicated to hold two negotiating tables, with the participation of representatives of civil society organizations. The topic of the first table will be digital security, as Point-Iraq Project partners aspire to launch Point Digital Security Initiative, which aims at providing electronic protection for activists and partner organizations. The second table will be dedicated to talk about the use of "Nuraqeb" application, which will be launched by the Academic Center for Smart Administration, to coordinate efforts between networks and organizations concerned with the election monitoring field. These meetings will result in writing joint action plans, recording the forecast of participants, their recommendations and needs for future work with our project partners.
