Part of the Gingko Workshop Series: Arab Spring — 10 Years On:


The Jordan Workshop is an online workshop with participants aged between 20 and 40 from Jordan discussing the Arab Uprisings and its impact on their lives.

This workshop is part of the Gingko Workshop Series and aims to provide a platform for young Arabs to express their hopes and disappointments about the process of political change unfolding in the WANA region since 2010. Small groups of young adults from Arab countries are invited to reflect on how they have experienced political change—or lack thereof—and its implications on their lives.

The Jordan Workshop examines new forms of citizenry among Jordanians and new opportunities for entrepreneurship and activism. It explores forms of engagement through media platforms, new and old, and if/how this engagement creates new networks for young Jordanians. It will investigate the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic and the associated economic crisis on career plans. The workshop also discusses the impact of the refugee response on perceptions about Jordan’s history and its future.

The workshop is conducted virtually on Zoom at 4pm on 29 May 2021. The workshop will be recorded and released as a podcast. The session language is English.

Those who are interested in participating in the workshop should contact Project Coordinator Bayan Almasri at

Amman, Jordan
