Refugees

Jordan, and the wider region, has been hit with a massive and sudden movement of refugees fleeing conflict in various countries in the region. Consequences of this crisis include economic and social destabilization in a country already facing severe poverty. The Center in Amman continues to work on various programs, conferences, research projects, and talks that address the refugee crisis and how host countries need to re-examine the humanitarian aid structure and relief models as well as how institutions can better respond to the crisis.
