The Campaign to End Statelessness in Jordan


Despite 20th-century human rights treaties aiming to ensure universal human rights, stateless individuals continue to encounter obstacles in accessing fundamental rights like education, healthcare, and employment. Jordan, like many MENA countries, hasn’t ratified key UN treaties on statelessness or refugee rights, leaving stateless individuals in Jordan vulnerable to social, economic, and political marginalization.

Initiated by the Boston University School of Law’s International Human Rights Clinic, a long-term project investigating statelessness’s impact in the Middle East began in 2018.

This project expanded in 2020 when the Clinic launched a partnership with the Arab Renaissance for Democracy and Development (ARDD).

Focused on Jordan, this report is part of a wider initiative to establish a MENA statelessness network, the second such report mapping statelessness issues in the region. Offering recommendations to dismantle legal barriers, the report aims to significantly alleviate statelessness in Jordan.
