Jordan’s society has changed substantially over the past decades. Communities have grown larger, especially in the urban areas and particularly in Amman, where most jobs are located. The population has increased, fed by immigration from neighbouring countries. Increased poverty has raised crime rates throughout the kingdom. The government has taken measures to protect families, especially to preserve the rights of children and women. Women take part in the political life of the nation, as members of parliament and in various ministries. Young people today are more aware of their rights and are more politicized. The online media are playing a more important role in everyday life and have become a platform on which people from various walks of life can express their views.

We would like to ask you something …

Fanack is an independent media organisation, not funded by any state or any interest group, that distributes in the Middle East and the wider world unbiased analysis and background information, based on facts, about the Middle East and North Africa.

The website grew rapidly in breadth and depth and today forms a rich and valuable source of information on 21 countries, from Morocco to Oman and from Iran to Yemen, both in Arabic and English. We currently reach six million readers annually and growing fast.

In order to guarantee the impartiality of information on the Chronicle, articles are published without by-lines. This also allows correspondents to write more freely about sensitive or controversial issues in their country. All articles are fact-checked before publication to ensure that content is accurate, current and unbiased.

To run such a website is very expensive. With a small donation, you can make a huge impact. And it only takes a minute. Thank you.
