Jordan continues to develop its own homegrown reform model on the region level based on a clear reform road map, as democracy is more than an act of elections but an active system of governance in which citizens participate in the decision-making process and their civil rights are preserved.
Strong democratic institutions
Building strong democratic institutions is critical to the democratization process as these institutions are clear reference points for overcoming disagreements, breaking deadlocks, and contributes to enhancing the values of active citizenship and a state of institutions based on the rule of law.
Jordan relies on an approach that guarantees the rights and freedoms of all within a constitutional framework and established supporting constitutional institutions in a manner that works to build the broadest consensus possible, in order to achieve a functioning democratic system that unites people and does not divided them in the name of democracy.
Pragmatic and agile
Jordan is committed to the reform process, despite the unpredictable regional reality. In order to be successful in reaching its end goal, Jordan remains pragmatic and agile, particularly as sustainable democratization requires taking into account and internalizing new developments that may transpire.
