In September 2011, the Raoul Wallenberg Institute established a regional field presence in Amman, Jordan, to facilitate the implementation of the Institute’s cooperation regionally in the Middle East and North Africa and the further development of projects in the region. The Raoul Wallenberg Institute was registered as a branch of a foreign society in Jordan in November 2011.

The Raoul Wallenberg Institute office in Amman maintains close cooperation with institutions active in Jordan and the wider region in the human rights field. Currently, four staff members work at the Institute’s Amman Office with the management of the Raoul Wallenberg Institute’s regional programme in the Middle East and North Africa.
