MOST School in Jordan: Inequalities and Urban Inclusion

The first Jordanian national MOST School will be organized by UNESCO and the University of Jordan (UOJ), in Amman, Jordania, from 29 to 31 July 2019. Organized in the context of UNESCO's Management of Social Transformations (MOST) Programme, it aims to strengthen competencies for evidence-informed decision-making. The theme is “Addressing Inequalities and Urban Inclusion in Jordan”.

This MOST School proposes to develop the capacity of young researchers and policy stakeholders in policy and action-oriented research and dialogue to support long-term sustainable development. It will include a mixture of panel discussions on cutting-edge research and actions on the ground and 2 workshops on applied development policy research, leading to a recommendation and identification of further collaborative policy research dialogue in Jordan.

The profiles of 25-35 participants/trainees include:
- Master and PhD students from social sciences (inter-disciplinarity is encouraged).
- Young professionals from line ministries including students from National School of Administration.
- Activists and experts from civil society organizations.


MOST Schools are capacity-building activities focused on strengthening the competencies for evidence-informed decision-making in Member States. They help develop the capacity of researchers and decision-makers to translate knowledge into action. Their primary goal is to support long-term sustainable development in contexts where capacity gaps may be a major constraint to translating research into action.
