Advocacy for Jordan

What’s Happening? 

More than 670,000 Syrian refugees have sought refuge in Jordan, 17 percent of whom live in camps. With no immediate resolution to the war, refugees overwhelmingly plan to remain in Jordan, but local integration remains a critical challenge. The majority of refugees struggle to obtain decent and formal jobs despite previous efforts by the Jordanian government, supported by donors, to expand economic access and investment under the 2016 Jordan Compact. 

What Must Be Done? 

Syrian refugees in Jordan need durable solutions that allow them to integrate, work, and thrive. Refugees International is calling for improved economic access—especially for women—education access for children, and long-term, sustainable shelter options.
