Osama Diab

Egyptian Initiative For Personal Rights
Transparency and Anti-Corruption Officer
Osama is the transparency and anti-corruption officer at the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights (EIPR). Osama researches  corruption and transparency issues from a human rights perspective, as well as a transitional context touching upon issues such as truth seeking, dealing with the past and reconciliation amongst other. Osama has also been part of EIPR's working group on transitional justice which advocates for the inclusion of economic crimes and wide-scale corruption in any future processes of truth finding or transitional justice. This is in an attempt to challenge both an effective and statutory hierarchy of rights which traditionally gives priority to civil and political rights over economic, social and cultural rights.
