GPG is working closely with the Ministry of Political and Parliamentary Affairs and the Jordanian parliament to improve the way in which the parliament functions. The project started in 2012 and focuses on supporting the ministry in delivering their political reform programme and managing the relationship between the executive and parliament. We are working with several parliamentary committees to develop their working method and structures and enhance effectiveness in legislative scrutiny and oversight of government. GPG also provides advice and support to parliamentary blocs in strengthening their internal policy-making and decision-making processes in parliament through workshops, seminars and regional events.
Our local partner in Jordan is Al-Hayat Centre for Civil Society Development. It was established on 31 May 2006. Their work aims to raise awareness among Jordanians on values of democracy and human rights, such as good governance, rule of law, gender equality, and public participation, and equip them with participatory skills to play an active role in politics.
