Presentation of research activity or teaching

Amman Center for Human Rights Studies (ACHRS) is an independent, regional, scientific, advocacy center for studies, research and training on issues of human rights and democracy. In pursuit of contributing to the dissemination of a culture of human rights, their work and activities aim at strengthening civil society in Jordan and in the Arab World, and at inducing a change to the general level of awareness and sensibility towards human rights and democracy. Their main working themes are civil rights and political life and education and professional training.

The most important initiative of ACHRS in the field of gender equality is the creation in 2010 of the Jordanian Institute for Women Leadership, in partnership with Finn Church Aid. The aim of this educational project is to provide women from Middle East and North Africa with the skills and knowledge that help them become active citizens of their communities. The project consists of a series of courses, organized and hosted annually by ACHRS on human rights, citizenship, democracy, leadership skills, given by highly respected professionals from MENA region, university professors, researchers and practitioners. The project includes also a field visit to one of the Arab participating countries. In the las 6 years, more than 100 women of different professional background (e.g. lawyers, human rights activists, school teachers, students) graduated from the courses. In 2016, two graduates will be candidates in the general elections held in Jordan.

ACHRS has more than 10 years of work experience in gender equality.
