The “State of
the Country” Report is issued by the Council after a year’s worth of work. Over
700 experts and researchers from various fields and sectors took part in the
construction of the report. The report takes on the form of an internal audit
aimed at evaluating the government’s strategies and strategic plans; in terms
of what has been achieved and implemented and what has not. The report then
moves on to providing recommendations on how to move forward. The report is
comprehensive in tackling a total of 128 sector-specific and national cross
cutting strategies, in 35 papers covering the various economic and social
sectors in addition to other topics related to the legislative authorities, the
parliament, the judiciary, law enforcement and civic violence, civil society
institutions and human rights.
Hamarneh, the President of the Council, explained that this report is the first
of its kind and will form the basis for a series of reports that will be
produced and issued on an annual basis.
