Democratization & Public Accountabillity

Sharaka -1

The Sharaka project directly engaged citizens in Lebanon in the fight against corruption by providing free legal advice through the Lebanese Advocacy and Legal Advice Center (LALAC). The project involved a range of awareness raising and outreach efforts to inform citizens on their legal rights as well as empower them to report cases of corruption.

Main Activities:


-          A national billboard campaign promoting the LALAC hotline;

-          A series of SMS waves targeting victims of corruption (each SMS wave emphasizing a different sector)

-          15 outreach sessions around Lebanon to inform both citizens and refugees on their legal rights as well as encourage them to report cases to LALAC

-          A three-day workshop on Investigative Journalism which trained 23 junior journalists.
