The Path to Active Citizenship in Jordan


Under the auspices of the European Union and Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the Information and Research Center - King Hussein Foundation (IRCKHF) will explore the civic engagement of one of Jordan’s most at-risk populations – its youth- through a project on active citizenship.

Through a background paper based on a compilation of desk research, focus group discussions with youth in various regions of Jordan, and interviews with key organizations engaging youth across the Kingdom, the IRCKHF will outline the fundamental skills necessary for active citizenship, explore the path to the acquisition of these skills in Jordanian society, and identify the barriers that potentially prevent youth in Jordan from fully engaging as active citizens. By additionally examining the available institutional, formal, or non-formal framework for youth participation, this project will highlight the past and present successes of youth engagement in Jordan along with, and perhaps more importantly, the areas for improvement.

The findings of this project will contribute to the joint EU-OECD Youth Inclusion Project.
