This report aims to understand the risks that Syrian refugee families, especially women and girls, face in Jordan, and to provide a deeper understanding of Syrian urban refugees’ knowledge, attitudes, and practices towards gender-based violence. It was carried out with the participation of a range of community-based stakeholders in 11 of Jordan’s 12 governorates.
The report focuses on early and forced marriage, gender-based violence, community relations, child protection and access to basic resources and services.
The findings are based on data collected through a questionnaire; focus group discussions; and in-depth interviews with key informants, community leaders and service providers from all regions, selected for their knowledge about the living conditions of the target population
