Interview with Brigadier General Abdelmonaam BELAATI, General Inspector of the Tunisian Armed Forces

ENGLISH VERSION
Interview with Brigadier General Abdelmonaam BELAATI, General Inspector of the Tunisian Armed Forces

Good governance and building integrity in Tunisian Armed Forces. Building Integrity Programme has deemed to be highly beneficial for the Tunisian Armed Forces.

1. How is the National Strategy on Good Governance is implemented?

The national strategy on Good Governance is being implemented through several means. In fact, the new Tunisian constitution of 2014 does not only state in its 10th Article the obligation of “the State to ensure the proper management of public funds and to take the necessary measures to use them in accordance with the priorities of the national economy. It acts to prevent corruption and all that is likely to undermine national sovereignty”; but also in its 130th Article, it enshrines the institutionalization of the Authority for Good Governance and the Fight Against Corruption.
Furthermore, it is useful to recall, that the efforts of the Tunisian State relating to its integration in the process of fight against corruption dates back to the approval of Tunisia of the United Nations Convention of the Fight against Corruption by law N°2008-16 of February 25, 2008, and its ratification by the Decree-Law N°2008-763 of March 24, 2008 and this, unfortunately, by the establishment of figurative and unreliable mechanisms, which gangrened the socio-economic tissue, engendering a corruption cost estimated in 2010, to 54% of GDP of Tunisia . This Authority set up a National Strategy of Good Governance and Fighting Corruption.
Fighting corruption concretised only after the fall of the former regime. Moreover, in this perspective, the Constituent Assembly created by Decree-Law N°2011-07 of 18 February 2011, the National Commission of Investigation on Corruption and Embezzlement, which was succeeded by the National Anti-Corruption Authority by the Decree-Law No. 2011-120 of 14 November 2011.
However, the fight against corruption remains a priority more than ever, according to Transparency International’s 2019 corruption perception index, Tunisia ranks 74th out of 180 countries. Corruption as a major indicator of poor governance and individual integrity has harmful effects on several sectors. In addition to the monetary aspect linked to the squandering of state resources, corruption hinders democracy and the rule of law, encourages the violation of human rights, distorts public procurement, degrades the quality of life and creates an environment conducive to organized crime, terrorism and other phenomena that threaten humanity. To cope with such a hazard, that it is considered as strategic so far, it is fundamental to implement principles of good governance including transparency, integrity, accountability, participation, rule of law, in order to guarantee for the institutions of the State the necessary protection against any form of instrumentalization affecting the general interest.
The Ministry of National Defense adhered to the national strategy of good governance and the fight against corruption and to the linking of the values of integrity in the management of its human resources, without forgetting that the Tunisian military institution, since its inception, has put in place control mechanisms, and audit practices, that safeguard it from any hazards and mishaps that may affect its operational readiness.

2. What action has been taken in the defence sector?

The actions that are being implemented in the defence sector were initiated in accordance with the specificity of the Tunisian Armed Forces. The MoD as a public service is not excluded from the changes required by the democratic transition. Hence, the MOD is governed by parliamentary control in the management of its structures. As a result, the military institution took the initiative to subject its activities to the control of presidential and governmental institutions and parliamentary mechanisms. This approach also applies to matters relating to the development of individual integrity.

MoD took the necessary predispositions, to ensure good governance in all its activities and in particular the management of its allocated budget resources, in order to preserve and protect its personnel from the phenomenon of corruption.
In this context and in alignment with public sector structural reforms, MoD has proceded to:

- The establishment of the Central Unit of Good Governance;
- The adoption of Budget Management by Objectives;
- The membership of the Electronic Administration Program;
- The affiliation in the TUNEPS ;
- The establishment of an Information Access Cell ;
- The conclusion of a partnership agreement with the National Anti-Corruption Authority ;
- The conclusion of a partnership agreement with the High Authority for Administrative and Financial Control.

In alignment with the national and international environment, the MoD strengthened the principles of good governance and the development of the individual integrity of its personnel through:

- The revision of the general and special status of military personnel ;
- The development of the Code of Conduct and Ethics for Staff ;
- The declaration of the assets and attainments of the concerned staff ;
- Programming of training and awareness-raising sessions on ethics, good governance and integrity ;
- The development of a guide to good practice in resource management ;
- The establishment of a joint working team with the NACA ;
- The establishment of a joint working team with the HCAFC ;
- Conducting seminars on ethics, good governance and integrity in partnership with national and international organizations for the benefit of senior MoD officials, academies and military schools ;
- The integration of good governance (integrity, accountability, transparency and anti-corruption) in the curricula of military academies and schools.

3. What will be the approach of cooperation with NATO BI in the defence sector?

The approach of cooperation with NATO-BI in the defense sector considered seriously NATO’s recommendations and suggestions on the field. Indeed, the MoD integrated NATO’s BI program as a partner in 2016, in order to align with international standards adopted by NATO. In this context, a self-assessment questionnaire applied by NATO, has been the basis for the development of an action plan for the development of integrity and the reduction of the risks of corruption within the TAF , based on the gaps that will be determined through the peer review. This action plan provided an opportunity for MoD to participate in several NATO-led training sessions on integrity development, resource management, etc. and allowed for joint seminars on ethics, good governance, and integrity. These activities have had a very rewarding impact on audiences through the evaluations provided by them. With this in mind, the MoD is considering strengthening this collaboration to build on and share experiences and best practices with NATO.

As General Inspector of the Tunisian Armed Forces responsible for establishing the Sectorial Plan of good governance within MoD, in collaboration with national authorities and public institutions, I envision the establishment of an Action Plan, to achieve MoD goals in promoting good governance within the defense sector, and protect the TAF from any deviations that may affect the integrity of MoD personnel, and/or operational readiness.
With this in mind, it is intended to cooperate with NATO in these fields:

- The establishment of an action plan for the proper implementation of the aforementioned sectorial plan, and to carry out its evaluation according to the standards and indicators adopted in this framework;
- Promoting a dynamic of change in the field of good governance and the fight against corruption;
- The governance of human capital while taking into account the specificity of the defense sector;
- The implementation of risk management processes caused by management errors;
- Extension of the culture of good governance (transparency, integrity, ethics and accountability);
- The development of training programs in military academies and schools and the organization of oriented seminars.

4. What are the prospects for the future?

The MoD goal for the future is to implement the up-mentioned guidelines, which will promote a better perception of a new modern framework. Thus, mechanisms and procedures for monitoring, auditing and evaluation were initiated and are being developed with an evolving vision that takes into account national and international circumstances. This vision stems from the substantial efforts undertaken by the highest level of Command within MoD. The fundamental values on which our Republican Armed Forces stands are discipline, compliance with the law and neutrality. These attainments promote the establishment of a healthy and creative environment that meets the requirements of good governance with all these axes. The primary objective of this vision is to strengthen and reinforce the operational skills and confidence of the military in his or her institution. In order to do so, we are considering enhancing cooperation with NATO, and more particularly within the framework of Building Integrity Program, which is deemed highly beneficial for our military institution.


FRENCH VERSION
Entretien avec le général de brigade Abdelmonaam Belaati, inspecteur général des forces armées tunisiennes

La bonne gouvernance et le développement de l’intégrité au sein des forces armées tunisiennes. Le programme pour le développement de l’intégrité est jugé très bénéfique pour les forces armées tunisiennes.

1. Quelles sont les modalités d’exécution de la stratégie nationale de bonne gouvernance ?

La stratégie nationale de bonne gouvernance est mise en œuvre de plusieurs manières. En fait, la nouvelle constitution tunisienne de 2014, en particulier son article 10, dispose que l’État « veille à la bonne gestion des deniers publics et prend les mesures nécessaires pour les utiliser conformément aux priorités de l’économie nationale. Il agit en vue d’empêcher la corruption et tout ce qui est de nature à porter atteinte à la souveraineté nationale ». Outre cette obligation, l’article 130 garantit les fonctions de l’Instance de la bonne gouvernance et de la lutte contre la corruption.

Par ailleurs, il est utile de rappeler que les premières mesures prises par l’État tunisien pour s’intégrer au processus de lutte contre la corruption remontent à 2008, année où la Tunisie a adopté la loi n° 2008-16 du 25 février 2008 portant approbation de la convention des Nations Unies contre la corruption et le décret n° 2008-763 du 24 mars 2008 portant ratification de cet instrument. S’en est malheureusement suivie la création de mécanismes de façade peu fiables qui ont gangréné le tissu socioéconomique, générant un coût de corruption estimé en 2010 à 54 % du PIB de la Tunisie . L’Instance a élaboré une stratégie nationale de bonne gouvernance et de lutte contre la corruption.

La lutte anticorruption n’a vraiment pris forme qu’après la chute de l’ancien régime. De plus, l’assemblée constituante a adopté le décret-loi n° 2011-07 du 18 février 2011 portant création de la Commission nationale d’investigation sur la corruption et la malversation, à laquelle a succédé l’Instance nationale de lutte contre la corruption, instituée par le décret-loi n° 2011-120 du 14 novembre 2011.

Toutefois, la lutte contre la corruption est plus que jamais une priorité, puisque selon l’indice de perception de la corruption 2019 publié par Transparency International, la Tunisie se classe en 74e position sur 180 pays. La corruption, indicateur majeur des mauvaises pratiques de gouvernance et du manque d’intégrité individuelle, a des effets délétères dans plusieurs secteurs. Outre les aspects monétaires liés au gaspillage des ressources de l’État, la corruption est un frein à la démocratie et à l’état de droit, encourage la violation des droits humains, crée des distorsions sur les marchés publics, dégrade la qualité de vie et fait le lit de la criminalité organisée, du terrorisme et d’autres phénomènes qui menacent l’humanité. Pour faire face à ce danger, considéré comme un enjeu stratégique, il est fondamental de faire appliquer les principes de la bonne gouvernance, dont la transparence, l’intégrité, la redevabilité, la participation et l’état de droit, pour garantir aux institutions de l’État la protection nécessaire contre toute forme d’instrumentalisation au détriment de l’intérêt général.

Le ministère de la Défense nationale a adhéré à la stratégie nationale de bonne gouvernance et de lutte contre la corruption et a inscrit les valeurs d’intégrité dans la gestion de ses ressources humaines, sans oublier que, depuis sa création, l’institution militaire tunisienne a mis en place des mécanismes de contrôle et des pratiques d’audit qui la sauvegardent de tout danger ou incident susceptible de compromettre sa disponibilité opérationnelle.

2. Quelles mesures ont été prises dans le secteur de la défense ?

Les mesures actuellement appliquées dans le secteur de la défense ont été adoptées dans le plein respect des spécificités des forces armées tunisiennes. Le ministère de la Défense nationale, en tant qu’institution de service public, n’est pas épargné par les changements à opérer au cours de la transition démocratique. La gestion de ses structures est donc soumise à un contrôle parlementaire. Par conséquent, l’institution militaire a pris l’initiative de soumettre ses activités au contrôle des institutions présidentielles et gouvernementales et des mécanismes parlementaires. Cette approche vaut également pour les questions relatives au développement de l’intégrité individuelle.

Le ministère de la Défense nationale a pris les dispositions nécessaires pour assurer la bonne gouvernance dans toutes ses activités et, en particulier, dans la gestion des ressources budgétaires affectées, et ce, afin de préserver et de protéger son personnel de la corruption.
Dans ce contexte, au diapason des réformes structurelles de la fonction publique, le ministère a pris les mesures suivantes :

- Création d’une cellule centrale de gouvernance ;
- Adoption d’une démarche de gestion du budget par objectifs ;
- Participation au programme d’administration électronique ;
- Rattachement au TUNEPS ;
- Création d’une cellule d’accès à l’information ;
- Conclusion d’une convention de partenariat avec l’Instance nationale de lutte contre la corruption (INLUCC) ;
- Conclusion d’une convention de partenariat avec le Haut comité du contrôle administratif et financier (HCCAF).

S’inscrivant dans son environnement national et international, le ministère de la Défense nationale a renforcé les principes de bonne gouvernance et le développement de l’intégrité individuelle au sein de son personnel, en s’appuyant sur les moyens suivants :

- Révision du statut général et du statut particulier du personnel militaire ;
- Élaboration d’un code de conduite et d’éthique pour les agents ;
- Déclaration des ressources et acquisitions des personnels concernés ;
- Programmation de séances de formation et de sensibilisation sur l’éthique, la bonne gouvernance et l’intégrité ;
- Élaboration d’un guide de bonne pratique sur la gestion des ressources ;
- Création d’une équipe de travail mixte avec l’INLUCC ;
- Création d’une équipe de travail mixte avec le HCCAF ;
- Animation de séminaires sur l’éthique, la bonne gouvernance et l’intégrité en partenariat avec des organisations nationales et internationales à destination des hauts fonctionnaires du ministère de la Défense nationale et des académies et écoles militaires ;
- Intégration de la bonne gouvernance (intégrité, redevabilité, transparence et lutte anticorruption) dans le programme de formation des académies et écoles militaires.

3. Sous quel angle la coopération avec le programme BI de l’OTAN va-t-elle être abordée dans le secteur de la défense ?

Les recommandations et propositions de l’OTAN dans ce domaine ont été tout particulièrement prises en considération. En effet, le ministère de la Défense nationale a rejoint le programme BI de l’OTAN en qualité de partenaire en 2016 afin de s’aligner sur les normes internationales adoptées par l’OTAN. Dans ce contexte, le questionnaire d’autoévaluation appliqué par l’OTAN a été utilisé pour élaborer un plan d’action pour le développement de l’intégrité et la réduction des risques de corruption au sein des FAT , l’idée étant de combler les lacunes qui seront mises en évidence dans le cadre de l’évaluation collégiale. L’élaboration de ce plan d’action a donné au ministère de la Défense nationale l’occasion de participer à plusieurs stages de formation sur le développement de l’intégrité, la gestion des ressources et d’autres thèmes, dirigés par l’OTAN, et a permis l’organisation de séminaires conjoints sur l’éthique, la bonne gouvernance et l’intégrité. Ces activités ont été très gratifiantes pour les participants, comme en témoignent les évaluations qu’ils ont fournies. Dans cette optique, le ministère de la Défense nationale envisage de renforcer cette collaboration afin de mettre à profit et de partager avec l’OTAN les données d’expérience et les bonnes pratiques.

En tant qu’inspecteur général des forces armées tunisiennes chargé d’établir le plan sectoriel de bonne gouvernance au sein du ministère de la Défense nationale, en collaboration avec les autorités nationales et les pouvoirs publics, j’envisage la création d’un plan d’action pour appuyer la réalisation des objectifs du ministère relatifs à la promotion de la bonne gouvernance dans le secteur de la défense et pour protéger les FAT des dérives qui pourraient compromettre l’intégrité du personnel du ministère et/ou l’état de préparation opérationnelle.
Il s’agit à cet effet de coopérer avec l’OTAN dans les domaines suivants :

- Mise en place d’un plan d’action à l’appui de la bonne exécution du plan sectoriel précité et évaluation du plan au regard des normes et des indicateurs adoptés dans ce cadre ;
- Promotion d’une dynamique de changement dans le domaine de la bonne gouvernance et de la lutte contre la corruption ;
- Gouvernance du capital humain, en tenant compte de la spécificité du secteur de la défense ;
- Mise en œuvre des processus de gestion des risques causés par des erreurs de gestion ;
- Extension de la culture de bonne gouvernance (transparence, intégrité, éthique et redevabilité) ;
- Mise au point de programmes de formation dans les académies et écoles militaires et organisation de séminaires ciblés.

4. Quelles sont les perspectives d’avenir ?

Pour l’avenir, l’objectif du ministère de la Défense nationale est d’appliquer les orientations susmentionnées, ce qui favorisera une perception aiguisée d’un nouveau cadre moderne. Ainsi, des mécanismes et procédures de suivi, de vérification et d’évaluation ont été mis en place et sont actuellement affinés selon une vision évolutive qui tient compte des circonstances nationales et internationales. Cette vision est inspirée des initiatives majeures entreprises par le plus haut échelon de commandement au sein du ministère de la Défense nationale. Les valeurs fondamentales que défendent nos forces armées républicaines sont la discipline, le respect de la loi et la neutralité. Ces réalisations sont propices à l’instauration d’un environnement sain et créatif, conforme aux principes obligatoires de la bonne gouvernance le long de tous ces axes de travail. Selon cette vision, l’objectif premier est de renforcer et de consolider les aptitudes opérationnelles et la confiance que placent les militaires dans leur institution. Pour ce faire, nous envisageons de resserrer notre coopération avec l’OTAN, plus particulièrement dans le cadre du programme pour le développement de l’intégrité, qui est jugé très bénéfique pour notre appareil militaire.


ARABIC VERSION
مقابلة مع أمير اللواء عبد المنعم بالعاتي، المتفقد العام للقوات المسلحة التونسية

الحوكمة الرشيدة وبناء النزاهة في القوات المسلحة التونسية. يعتبر برنامج النزاهة مفيداً للغاية للقوات المسلحة التونسية.

كيف يتم تنفيذ الاستراتيجية الوطنية للحوكمة الرشيدة؟

يتم تنفيذ الاستراتيجية الوطنية للحوكمة الرشيدة من خلال عدة وسائل. وفي الواقع، ينص الدستور التونسي الجديد لسنة 2014 في الفصل 10 منه على أن "تحرص الدولة علي حسن التصرف في المال العمومي، وتتخذ التدابير اللازمة لصرفه حسب أولويات الاقتصاد الوطني" وتتخذ اللازم من أجل "منع الفساد وكل ما من شأنه رهن .. السيادة الوطنية"، كما ينص أيضاً في الفصل 130 على إضفاء الطابع المؤسسي على هيئة الحوكمة الرشيدة ومكافحة الفساد.

علاوة على ذلك، يجدر التذكير بأن جهود الدولة التونسية المتعلقة بمشاركتها في عملية مكافحة الفساد تعود إلى موافقة تونس على اتفاقية الأمم المتحدة لمكافحة الفساد بموجب القانون رقم 16 لسنة 2008، المؤرخ 25 فبراير 2008، والمصادقة عليه بموجب المرسوم بقانون رقم 763 لسنة 2008 المؤرخ 24 مارس 2008. إلا أن هذا تم، للأسف، من خلال إنشاء آليات صورية وغير موثوق بها، مما أدى إلى إفساد النسيج الاجتماعي والاقتصادي وحمّل البلاد أعباء للفساد قدرت في عام 2010 بحوالي 54٪ من الناتج المحلي الإجمالي لتونس[1]. وقد وضعت الهيئة المذكورة استراتيجية وطنية للحوكمة الرشيدة ومكافحة الفساد.

ولم تتحول عملية مكافحة الفساد إلى واقع ملموس إلا بعد سقوط النظام السابق. وفي هذا الإطار، باشرت الجمعية التأسيسية بإصدار المرسوم بقانون رقم 7 لسنة 2011، المؤرخ 18 فبراير 2011، بإنشاء اللجنة الوطنية لتقصي الحقائق حول الفساد والرشوة، والتي خلّفتها الهيئة الوطنية لمكافحة الفساد بموجب المرسوم بقانون رقم 120 لسنة 2011، المؤرخ 14 نوفمبر 2011.

ومع ذلك، تعتبر مكافحة الفساد اليوم أولوية أعلى من أي وقت مضى، حيث يفيد مؤشر مدركات الفساد الصادر عن منظمة الشفافية الدولية لعام 2019، إلى أن تونس تحتل المرتبة 74 من بين 180 دولة. فالفساد، بصفته مؤشر رئيسي لسوء الحوكمة ونقص النزاهة الفردية، له آثار ضارة على عدة قطاعات، لأنه، بالإضافة إلى الجانب النقدي المرتبط بتبديد موارد الدولة، يؤدي إلى إعاقة الديمقراطية وسيادة القانون، ويشجع على انتهاك حقوق الإنسان، ويقوّض نزاهة إجراءات المشتريات العامة، ويضعِف جودة الحياة، ويخلق بيئة مواتية للجريمة المنظمة والإرهاب وغيرها من الظواهر التي تهدد البشرية. وتقتضي مواجهة هذا الخطر، والذي يعدّ خطراً استراتيجياً، تطبيق مبادئ الحوكمة الرشيدة بما يشمل الشفافية والنزاهة والمساءلة والمشاركة وسيادة القانون، من أجل ضمان حصول مؤسسات الدولة على الحماية الضرورية ضد أي شكل من أشكال استغلال الفساد كأداة تضرّ بالمصلحة العامة.

اشتملت مقاربة التعاون مع برنامج الناتو لبناء النزاهة في قطاع الدفاع على النظر بجدية في توصيات ومقترحات الناتو بشأن هذا المجال. وفي الواقع، قامت وزارة الدفاع بدمج برنامج الناتو لبناء النزاهة كشريك في عام 2016، وذلك من أجل تحقيق الاتساق مع المعايير الدولية التي اعتمدتها الناتو.

التزمت وزارة الدفاع الوطني بالاستراتيجية الوطنية للحوكمة الرشيدة ومكافحة الفساد، وكذلك بدمج قيم النزاهة في إدارة مواردها البشرية، دون أن تنسى أن المؤسسة العسكرية التونسية، منذ إنشائها، وضعت آليات الرقابة وممارسات التدقيق اللازمة لحمايتها من أي مخاطر وحوادث قد تؤثر على جاهزيتها العملياتية.

ما هي الإجراءات التي تم اتخاذها في قطاع الدفاع؟

لقد تم اعتماد الإجراءات الجاري حالياً تنفيذها في قطاع الدفاع بما يتوافق مع خصوصيات القوات المسلحة التونسية. كما أن وزارة الدفاع[2]، باعتبارها جزء من قطاع الخدمة العمومية، ليست مستثناة من التغييرات التي تقتضيها عملية التحول الديمقراطي، وبالتالي، تخضع وزارة الدفاع لرقابة برلمانية في إدارة هيئاتها ومؤسساتها. ونتيجة لذلك، بادرت المؤسسة العسكرية لإخضاع أنشطتها لرقابة المؤسسات الرئاسية والحكومية والآليات البرلمانية. وتنطبق هذه المقاربة أيضاً على الأمور المتعلقة بتعزيز النزاهة على المستوى الفردي.

لقد اتخذت وزارة الدفاع الاستعدادات اللازمة لضمان تحقيق الحوكمة الرشيدة في جميع أنشطتها، وخاصة فيما يتعلق بإدارة موارد الميزانية المخصصة لها، من أجل حفظ نزاهة موظفيها وحمايتهم من ظاهرة الفساد.

في هذا السياق، وبما يتماشى مع الإصلاحات الهيكلية للقطاع العام، اتخذت وزارة الدفاع الإجراءات التالية:

• إنشاء الوحدة المركزية للحوكمة الرشيدة؛
• اعتماد منظومة التصرف في الميزانية حسب الأهداف؛
• الانضمام إلى عضوية برنامج الإدارة الإلكترونية؛
• الانتساب إلى منظومة TUNEPS[3]؛
• إنشاء خلية النفاذ إلى المعلومة؛
• إبرام اتفاقية شراكة مع الهيئة الوطنية لمكافحة الفساد؛
• إبرام اتفاقية شراكة مع الهيئة العليا للرقابة الإدارية والمالية.

وتمشيا مع التطورات الوطنية والدولية، عززت وزارة الدفاع مبادئ الحوكمة الرشيدة وتعزيز النزاهة الفردية لموظفيها من خلال ما يلي:

• مراجعة الوضع العام والخاص للأفراد العسكريين؛
• تطوير مدونة السلوك والأخلاقيات للعاملين؛
• الإفصاح عن الأصول والمميزات للعاملين المعنيين؛
• إعداد برامج دورات التدريب والتوعية بشأن الأخلاقيات والحوكمة الرشيدة والنزاهة؛
• إعداد دليل للممارسات الجيدة في مجال إدارة الموارد؛
• إنشاء فريق عمل مشترك مع NACA[4]؛
• إنشاء فريق عمل مشترك مع HCAFC[5]؛
• عقد ندوات حول الأخلاقيات والحوكمة الرشيدة والنزاهة بالشراكة مع المنظمات الوطنية والدولية شارك فيها كبار مسؤولي وزارة الدفاع والأكاديميات والمدارس العسكرية؛
• دمج الحوكمة الرشيدة (النزاهة والمساءلة والشفافية ومكافحة الفساد) في مناهج الأكاديميات والمدارس العسكرية.

ما المقاربة التي ستتبعونها في التعاون مع برنامج الناتو لبناء النزاهة في قطاع الدفاع؟

اشتملت مقاربة التعاون مع برنامج الناتو لبناء النزاهة في قطاع الدفاع على النظر بجدية في توصيات ومقترحات الناتو بشأن هذا المجال. وفي الواقع، قامت وزارة الدفاع بدمج برنامج الناتو لبناء النزاهة كشريك في عام 2016، وذلك من أجل تحقيق الاتساق مع المعايير الدولية التي اعتمدتها الناتو. وفي هذا السياق، كان استبيان التقييم الذاتي الذي تنفذه الناتو بمثابة الأساس لوضع خطة عمل لتطوير النزاهة والحد من مخاطر الفساد في القوات المسلحة التونسية، وذلك على أساس الثغرات التي سيتم تحديدها في مراجعة الأقران. وقد أتاحت خطة العمل الفرصة أمام وزارة الدفاع للمشاركة في العديد من دورات التدريب التي تقودها الناتو حول تعزيز النزاهة وإدارة الموارد وغيرها من الموضوعات ذات الصلة، مما ساعد الوزارة على عقد حلقات دراسية مشتركة حول الأخلاقيات والحوكمة الرشيدة والنزاهة. ونجحت هذه الأنشطة في تحقيق نتائج عالية الفائدة للمشاركين فيها، وهو ما يتضح من التقييمات التي قدموها. وفي ضوء ذلك باتت وزارة الدفاع تنظر الآن في تعزيز هذا التعاون من أجل البناء على الخبرات وأفضل الممارسات وتبادلها مع الناتو.

وبصفتي المتفقد العام للقوات المسلحة التونسية، والمسؤول عن وضع الخطة القطاعية للحوكمة الرشيدة داخل وزارة الدفاع، بالتعاون مع السلطات الوطنية والمؤسسات العامة المعنية، فإنني أرى ضرورة لوضع خطة عمل تحقق أهداف وزارة الدفاع الخاصة بتعزيز الحوكمة الرشيدة في قطاع الدفاع، وحماية القوات المسلحة التونسية من أي انحرافات قد تؤثر على نزاهة أفراد وزارة الدفاع و/أو جاهزيتها العملياتية.

وفي ضوء ما تقدم، فإننا نهدف إلى التعاون مع الناتو في المجالات التالية:

• وضع خطة عمل للتنفيذ السليم للخطة القطاعية المذكورة، وإجراء تقييم لها وفقاً للمعايير والمؤشرات المعتمدة في هذا الإطار؛
• تعزيز ديناميكية التغيير في مجال الحوكمة الرشيدة ومكافحة الفساد؛
• حوكمة رأس المال البشري مع مراعاة خصوصية قطاع الدفاع؛
• تنفيذ عمليات إدارة المخاطر المترتبة على أخطاء الإدارة؛
• نشر ثقافة الحوكمة الرشيدة (الشفافية والنزاهة والأخلاقيات والمساءلة)؛
• تطوير برامج التدريب في الأكاديميات والمدارس العسكرية وتنظيم ندوات موجهة لهذا الغرض.

ما هي آفاق المستقبل؟

هدف وزارة الدفاع للمستقبل هو تنفيذ المبادئ التوجيهية المذكورة أعلاه، والتي من شأنها أن ترتقي بمستوى المدركات تجاه الإطار العصري الجديد. ولهذا تم البدء في وضع آليات وإجراءات للمراقبة والتدقيق والتقييم، حيث يتم إعدادها على أساس رؤية دائمة التطور تأخذ في الاعتبار الظروف الوطنية والدولية المحيطة. وتنبع هذه الرؤية من الجهود الكبيرة التي بذلتها أعلى المستويات القيادية داخل وزارة الدفاع. إن قوات الجمهورية التونسية المسلحة تقوم على قيم أساسية تتمثل في الانضباط والامتثال للقانون والحياد. وهذه الإنجازات من شأنها الإسهام في إقامة بيئة سليمة وابتكارية تلبي متطلبات الحوكمة الرشيدة عبر جميع هذه المحاور. والهدف الأساسي من هذه الرؤية هو تقوية وتعزيز المهارات العملياتية التي يتمتع بها أفراد القوات المسلكة رجالاً ونساء، وترسيخ ثقتهم في مؤسستهم العسكرية. وتحقيقاً لذلك، نعكف حالياً على دراسة سبل تعزيز التعاون مع الناتو، وبشكل خاص في إطار برنامج بناء النزاهة الذي يعتبر مفيداً للغاية لمؤسستنا العسكرية.
