Hiwar: First Civil Society for Information is licensed
Last February, a civil Society under the name of Al Hiwar was
licensed. It aims to provide information by collecting and distributing
data, as well as conducting research studies and preparing surveys
and statistics, particularly those related to the youth. In addition,
the society aims to promote a culture of dialogue between various
parties which differ in their opinions and positions on social issues.
The President of the society, Sayid Adnan Jalal, said in an interview
with AlWasat Arabic daily newspaper on 9 April 2009 that the future
plan of Hiwar will focus on training, promoting national belonging,
spreading environmental awareness and nurturing hidden talents.
He also added that Hiwar is not exactly a youth society, but a society
in which youth represent the majority of its members and its main
concern is youth issues, including engaging and integrating young
people in social issues.
