Resource Highlight

THE RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION ONLINE IN JORDAN

Since October 2017, the Jordanian government has repeatedly attempted to regulate the use of social media in ways that limit free expression. ICNL’s guide provides a deeper understanding of the laws and regulations aimed at social media use and the right to freedom of expression online.

Civil Society Organization Sustainability Index

The index, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development for twenty years, documents the development of civil society in seventy-one countries around the world, including Jordan. ICNL and FHI 360 work with local partners to produce the index annually.
