Columbia Global Centers | Amman was established in March 2009 and is a hub for programs and educational initiatives throughout the Middle East. The Amman Center is part of an expanding network of Columbia Global Centers that serve as conduits for local, regional, and global knowledge, expertise, and networks.

The Global Centers are intellectual and physical infrastructures for Columbia University that provide faculty and students with opportunities to expand their research and scholarship, and facilitate knowledge exchange and skill development with local and regional academics, experts, and practitioners. The Centers also focus on community engagement, by hosting speaker series that seek to spark dialogue in the community on issues ranging from geopolitics to the arts, and through workshops, conferences, and research projects organized by Columbia faculty and schools in partnership with local stakeholders.

Columbia’s vision for the Global Centers was driven by a motivation to learn from, and with, the world. The network of Global Centers forms the core of Columbia’s global strategy, which is to expand the University’s ability to contribute positively to the world by advancing research and producing new knowledge on the most important issues confronting our planet.

During these unprecedented times, we must not lose sight of the impact of the pandemic on refugees and forcibly displaced people. As host governments and international aid groups are trying to figure out how best to move forward, there exists a clear gap when it comes to concrete evidence about the impact of COVID-19 on refugees, particularly those in urban settings, outside of refugee camps.
