Adolescents in Jordan: voice, agency, mobility and social cohesion

22.07.19 | Voice and agency | Jordan

Authors

Elizabeth Presler-Marshall, Nicola Jones and Sarah Baird with Agnieszka Malachowska

Due to generational hierarchies in Jordan, opportunities for adolescents to exercise voice and agency – over their own lives, in their households and their broader communities – are fairly limited. Our research suggests that government and humanitarian programming could do much more to provide young people with opportunities to participate in community affairs and to build social cohesion and a sense of shared belonging.
