Public Sector Integrity


Working Group on Civil Service and Integrity

The Regional Working Group on Civil Service and Integrity addresses a wide variety of policy issues related to achieving sustainable civil service reform and higher levels of integrity in Arab countries.


At the GfD Initiative’s Launching Conference, participants agreed on a first set of policy issues to be considered. During the First Meeting of the Initiative’s Steering Group on 27-28 April 2005, these were refined into a “Framework for Policy Dialogue” which will serve to guide the initial Implementation Phases.

The Working Group on Civil Service and Integrity is chaired by Mr. Azzeddine Diouri, Secretary General, Ministry of Public Sector Modernisation, Morocco and co-chaired by Ms. Cristina Jurranz, Deputy Director for Real Estate, Under Secretariat of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Co-operation, Spain, and Mr. Efkan ALA, Undersecretary of State of the Prime Ministry, Turkey (see Arab Chairs and OECD Co-Chairs).
