Established over 24 years ago, The Movement for Quality Government in Israel (MQG), is a Jerusalem based NGO committed to promoting values of Democracy, Transparency, Good Governance, Civic Participation and Volunteerism in the Israeli society.
Over the years, MQG has become one of Israel's largest grassroots organizations, with over 45,000 members and supporters from the general public, as well as a foremost independent public watchdog organization enjoying unprecedented legal success.
As a movement for social and civic change, MQG fervently believes in the need to adopt a grassroots approach and to involve citizens in order to provide a real platform for social and civic empowerment. In a society fractured by party, religious and ethnic differences, citizens from all walks of life and all elements of the political spectrum are attracted to MQG's persistent pursuit of a single cause – a better state for the citizens of Israel.
MQG's outstanding work and remarkable achievements in this field have led to massive media coverage as well as to receiving several awards, among them: the "Integrity Award" in Berlin from Transparency International (TI) in 2005 and the Social Development Award.
The movement is the number one civic petitioner to the supreme court in Israel.
