Over the past decade, policymakers and practitioners have increasingly focused on the need to engage citizens who had been previously excluded from community and political activities, particularly youth and women. Jordan’s recently appointed Royal Committee to Modernize the Political System focused on the rights of Jordanians to practice civic engagement, and on women and youth political participation, thus involving Jordanians in the decision-making process and political party rights.

This conference hopes to shed light on civic participation, the role of religions in promoting peace and dialogue, and women and youth empowerment in all fields. Experts attending the conference will include politicians, party members, educators and youth activists from the region who will share their knowledge, points of view and experiences with decision-makers. KAS and JCCE are delighted to welcome panelists from Jordan, Tunisia, Palestine, Egypt and Europe. The aim is to deepen the knowledge of active citizenship among Arab communities, and especially in Jordan, in light of the recommendations of the Royal Committee to Modernize the Political System.

Attendance is by invitation only.
