Jordan hosted over 628,000 Syrian refugees in 2015, although the authorities are severely restricting new refugee arrivals. The authorities refused entry to all Palestinian refugees escaping Syria, and detained and forcibly deported dozens of those who entered the country irregularly. The country’s broad anti-terrorism law threatens freedom of expression, and other laws criminalize speech deemed critical of the king, government and Islam. Perpetrators of torture or other ill-treatment continue to enjoy near-total impunity. The law continues to discriminate against women by not allowing them to pass Jordanian citizenship to their children.
