JHR has been working in Jordan since 2013 to improve human rights coverage in the country and develop productive collaboration networks between the media and civil society organizations by building the capacity of both sectors.

JHR’s current programming, supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Jordan, builds on the organization’s track record of success in Jordan and seeks to increase freedom of expression and access to information in Jordan on human rights issues through the production of in-depth investigations, specifically targeting female practitioners and governorates outside of Amman who traditionally lack capacity building opportunities. The program will further build synergies between local and national outlets to ensure the Jordanian media sector collectively strengthens through feedback loops and collaborations.

JHR Jordan has created and maintains an online platform, Maidan, which has a combined audience with associated social media platforms of over 31,000.
