The Arab Thought Forum (ATF) is committed to the belief that state structures must be developed to serve and be responsive to an active and critical public, which is conscious of its obligations and duties, as well as its rights and entitlements
Several systems are used to monitor and evaluate the activities of the Arab Thought Forum (ATF). In addition to a Monitoring Committee, a separate computerized evaluation system traces and analyzes all activities and indicators, and measures their performance and impact. ATF also maintains a computerized accounting and financial reporting system with an accompanying baseline data system to assist in carrying out regular periodic reporting.
Over the last 28 years, ATF has maintained a disciplined tradition of conducting annual meetings of the Board of Trustees, monthly meetings of the Executive Committee and weekly staff meetings. Additional meetings are held on an ad hoc basis to identify tasks and interest areas for ATF to pursue.
Finally, all funded activities are monitored jointly with the respective donor organization through periodic reporting and evaluation sessions.
