Potential Impact of the Proposed Changes to the Jordanian Law of Societies
The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan’s government proposed changes to the Law of Societies No. 51 of 2008 (amended by Law No. 22 of 2009) in March 2016. As various stakeholders have highlighted, this appears a step back. Outlined below is the Arab Renaissance for Democracy and Development - ARDD’s legal opinion on the changes, which were submitted to the government in writing. We recommend this be read side-by-side with the original law.
