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.


Jordanie

JDH travaille en Jordanie depuis 2013 pour améliorer la couverture médiatique des droits humains dans le pays et pour mettre en place des réseaux de collaboration efficaces entre les médias et les organisations de la société civile -en améliorant les capacités des deux secteurs.

La programmation actuelle de JDH, soutenue par l’ambassade du Royaume des Pays-Bas en Jordanie, s’appuie sur les succès de l’organisation en Jordanie et vise à accroître la liberté d’expression et l’accès à l’information sur les questions de droits humains par la production d’enquêtes approfondies. Il vise plus particulièrement les acteurs media féminins et les gouvernorats en dehors d’Amman qui n’ont traditionnellement pas la possibilité de renforcer leurs capacités. Le programme renforcera les synergies entre les médias locaux et nationaux afin de garantir que le secteur des médias jordaniens se renforce collectivement grâce à des boucles de rétroaction et des collaborations.

JDH Jordanie a créé et administre une plateforme en ligne, Maidan, qui a une audience (combinée avec les plateformes de médias sociaux associées) de plus de 31 000 personnes.
