Afghanistan & MEC

Add to reading list


In this Section, I have brought together the inquiries and assessments of the Afghanistan Independent Joint Anti-Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Committee, universally known as MEC, in which I was one of the six Commissioners for the period Nov 2015 – Dec 2017. There are also reports which I was involved in that only came out after I had left, plus some publications and blogs that relate to this time in Afghanistan but were published under my name and those of my co-authors. We published formal assessments of vulnerabilities to corruption, reviews of Ministry efforts, regular quarterly follow ups of the major assessments, special inquiries, etc. MEC was dissolved and folded into a new Afghan Anti-Corruption entity.
