The Road to a Civil Democratic State

by Manuel Schubert, Mona Deeb
The Konrad Adenauer Foundation’s Jordan Office, in cooperation with the Nisan Center for Political and Parliamentary Development, has held a series of four workshops on topics presented by the government as matters of public debate. Those include King Abdullah’s Sixth Discussion paper on “Rule of Law and Civil State.” This fourth and last workshop in the series focused on the subject of the civil democratic state, the main topic of the King’s most recent discussion paper, and also dealt with the rule of law and judicial reform, subjects that developed out of the King’s paper.
