Dear Iraqi bloggers,

The German/Arab NGO "Media in Cooperation and Transition" (MICT), in partnership with the Federal Foreign Office of Belgium, has launched a new project “Constitution and Legislation in Debate”, starting in May 2006 and continuing until January 2007.

In the framework of this project MICT will follow the constitutional debate and legislative process during its first year by providing a unique, complete, and transparent online database of all the laws and draft laws as well as constitutional amendments, in addition to (online “niqash”) expertise of Iraqi lawyers and social scientists on the constitutional amendments and on laws that are discussed in the parliament.

The main foci will be:
• Federalism
• Economic and social issues including labor law, oil, privatization and social security.

MICT will invite Iraqi citizens to express their concerns, problems, and questions to an Online-Ombudsman. Benefiting from the anonymity of the Internet, Iraqis will acquire free assistance on legal and constitutional matters affecting their lives.

In July 2006 a workshop will be conducted, where MICT’s journalists will be trained to produce (radio and written) reports reflecting controversial perspectives on debated topics.

We would like to invite you to visit the site - - & give us feedback - what do you think is good, what do you think is not so good, what do you think should be included, etc ...
