Justice Needs and Satisfaction in Jordan 2017: Legal Problems in Daily Life

At the beginning of 2017 HiiL in partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, conducted the Justice Needs andSatisfaction (JNS) survey in Jordan. It is our fourth such study in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, after the UAE, Tunisia and Lebanon.

More than 6000 residents of Jordan told us about their most pressing justice problems, how they go about meeting them, and whether these approaches are successful. In our respondent group we included a separate sample of a particularly vulnerable group: Syrian refugees living in Jordan (600 respondents). The JNS methodology tries to understand people’s journeys to justice. In what ways do the journeys work? Where do they need repair? Where do they need to be entirely redesigned?
