Information events on "The new Decentralization Law" from March 28, until April 5, 2017 in Al-Taybeh, Jerash, Al-Kora, Ajloun, Al-Mazar and Kuferyouba / Jordan
The Decentralization Law, which came into force in 2016, is a key cornerstone of the reform process pursued by King Abdullah II since 2011 in Jordan. On the basis of the adopted law, elections will be held at the level of the governorates, for the first time in Jordan, in August 2017. The "Ministry for Political and Parliamentary Affairs - MoPA" is responsible for the introduction of the new law and for informing the population with the aim of winning them for participation in the elections. The Hanns Seidel Stiftung in Jordan in cooperation with the "Arab World Center for Democratic Development - UniHRD" supports the work of the Ministry.
Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked in countries around the world – including Jordan. Many of these victims are lured with false promises of financial or emotional security; and they are forced or coerced into commercial sex (prostitution), domestic servitude, or other types of forced labor.
