Jordan

Dossier

Jordan did not sign the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. Nevertheless the country received many refugees in the course of its history. Thus, in Jordan live 2.1 million Palestine refugees who possess the Jordan citizenship. In contrast to them, the 629.000 Syrian refugees registered by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) have only restricted rights. Their access to central social sectors as education, healthcare, and the labor market are limited. The longer war rules in their home country, the worse get their living conditions.
