Authorities in Jordan are becoming increasingly repressive, quashing dissent by arresting and harassing activists and journalists and using vague and abusive laws to restrict civic space in violation of international legal protections. Meanwhile, two years after the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic, the economic situation in Jordan remains precarious, and a weakened social protection net has meant many are unable to afford food, housing or education. Jordan has forcibly deported or threatened to deport some refugees in violation of its obligations under international law, while worsening economic conditions have forced others to return to countries that are not safe.
