AMAN was established in 2000 as a civil society organization that seeks to combat corruption and promote integrity, transparency and accountability in the Palestinian society. The Coalition was first formed by an initiative from a number of civil society organizations working in the field of democracy, human rights and good governance. In 2006, the Coalition was accredited as a national chapter for Transparency International.
AMAN is a Palestinian think tank and a specialized body providing knowledge on corruption at the local and regional level through producing specialized reports and studies. The periodic publications include: The annual Integrity and Anti-Corruption Report, the annual Palestinian Integrity Index and the National Integrity System studies and reports, in addition to the Coalition's continued contributions to produce reports and studies on the status of corruption in the Arab region.
As part of the global anti-corruption movement - and of international alliances and partnerships with relevant specialized coalitions and organizations - AMAN plays a key role in the transfer and contextualization of necessary international knowledge and tools to combat corruption in all sectors.

Aman adopts a sustainable strategy aims to build its capability in the field of combating corruption as a local house of expertise, and it contributes in transferring and exchanging its experience with other chapters of transparency international in the different countries and especially in the Arab Region to end up corruption in the governments, business society and civil society.
The National Accountability Day is organised in keeping with the belief of the Coalition for Accountability and Integrity (AMAN) and its partners in the West Bank and Gaza Strip that the youth need to engage in the anti-corruption effort, oversight of public financial management and public administration, and promotion of community accountability. This is all the more necessary due to inactive Palestinian Legislative Council as well as poor formal accountability and oversight of public administration.
