Jordan: Information and Research Center, King Hussein Foundation

Launched in 1996 as part of the National Task Force for Children, IRC works to improve the well-being of children, youth, women and families by providing multidisciplinary research and analysis to practitioners, policy makers and advocates in Jordan and the Middle East to enable effective socio-economic planning and decision making.

Information and Research Center, Jordan

Through active cooperation with national and international partners and the creation of an online database on development issues, the IRC contributes to social and cultural progress by disseminating research findings on critical subjects such as child labor, poverty, gender-based violence, women’s and children's rights and early childhood education. The Information and Research Center is a certified center for Monitoring and Evaluation and most recently joined the Thomson Reuters Foundation: TrustLaw Connect Network.


The IRC is currently working with UNICEF on the National Youth Survey for Jordan.
