OVERVIEW: JORDAN

Even without the massive influx of dispossessed and disillusioned Syrians, Jordan’s population make-up does little to reinforce a sense of stability. According to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the World Bank, between 1990 and 2008 Jordan’s population increased by 2.7 million, a staggering 86 per cent growth, far higher than any of its neighbours. For the most part native Jordanians are descended from village-dwellers and Bedouins whose origins are in the Arabian Peninsula. In addition, there are a number of small Jordanian minorities embracing communities of Circassian Chechens, Arameans and Armenians. Additionally there are refugee communities from the 2003 war in Iraq; these include Kurds, Assyrians and Mandeans.

Additionally, according to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in January 2012 there were more than two million Palestinian refugees in Jordan. That number is probably understated as it does not include all Jordanians of Palestinian descent. There are also an estimated one million Iraqis currently living in Jordan
