Violence at Jordanian universities is a result of unresolved tensions not only at the university level, but also at the social and political level. The underlying factors behind its appearance are deepening and its implications vary. In this context, KAS Amman and Scoopat organized a workshop entitled “Violence at Jordanian Universities,” with representatives from universities, civil society, media, and the political sphere to identify the reason and discuss possible solutions.
