Jordan

Jordan

For decades, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has been a peace broker in the Middle East and a safe haven for refugees in the region. Today, the overwhelming influx of refugees from Syria is straining Jordan’s economic and social fabric, while other challenges — like violent extremist recruitment and the marginalization of women and youth — contribute to heightening tensions.

We work in Jordan with the aim of bridging societal divides, preventing and transforming violent extremism, and empowering young people and women.
