And there is no doubt that without the fight against corruption and the promotion of transparency and without the promotion of transparency,  nothing would have been achieved in the direction of achieving the best,  , Especially as Iraq begins a new stage after the fall of ISIS which was one of the tools to produce corruption, the stage of salvation from the scourge of corruption and hence comes the role of civil society in the participation of the government and anyone who seeks to eliminate corruption. In his speech, Mr. Yassin dealt with corruption joints, the structure of the administration of the judiciary and the reasons for the corruption, in his speech, Mr. Yassin dealt with the corruption joints, the structure of the administration of the judiciary and the reasons for the corruption. He pointed out that one of the reasons for this is the administration of the government on the basis of quotas, which gave rise to political protection for the corrupt parties. Circumvent the laws and to prevent punishment.

Corruption escalating is caused by the lack of transparency and the absence of accurate statistics and data, especially in the field of tax revenues and fees. This is not the loss of activists, the most important tools in monitoring and follow-up is the legal tool to access information in addition to the lack of protection for whistleblowers.

Noting in his presentation some examples of cases of corruption and experiences of detection of corruption by activists, although not dealt with by the authorities, which raises doubts about a serious will to escape corruption.

There is also a failure and mismanagement by governments after 2003, citing examples of mismanagement in Iraq's budget for 2014, where the allocations of the security sector and defense formed 33% of the financial budget, while ISIS took over nearly 40% of Iraqi territory!!!

Then how was the security and defense sector managed with that proportion of the budget? Mr. Yasin explained the importance of the course of activists and organizations in enhancing transparency and eliminating corruption and their mechanisms in defense, monitoring and accountability, and the importance of these organizations be able to face the challenges and reactions of the affected by the detection of corruption,For example the importance of the presence of legal adviser and political adviser and media adviser to each organization working in this area, stressing the activists and organizations to deal with caution in the detection of cases of corruption and authorization by choosing words and vocabulary that avoid falling under the law if the other party resorted to.

As well as the existence of social media sites as active dissemination tools that activists can invest in publishing, provided that the information is real and accurate.

Then the floor for questions for participants and attendants was opened, The symposium was attended by a number of organizations and a number of activists from academics and the young people whose interventions focused on the mechanisms of civil society in the detection of corruption, the identification of causes of corruption through the presentation of realistic experiences, proposing solutions and anti-corruption activities.

In addition, there were cases of how the parliament dealt with many cases of corruption such as forgery of certificates, amnesty law, elections, housing in slums, state property and many others.
