ERICC Research Agenda for Jordan

The Country Research Agenda for Jordan was developed over the span of nine months as part of the first year of the Education Research in Conflict and Protracted Crisis (ERICC) program. ERICC is a large-scale FCDO-funded, three-year program to generate new, rigorous research evidence on the most effective approaches to providing education in conflict and protracted crisis contexts. Ultimately, the program aims to expand the global research base in this area and provide relevant evidence to policy-makers and other education stakeholders to support necessary reform in education delivery in conflict- and crisis-affected contexts. To this end, ERICC is being implemented in six conflict-affected countries – Jordan, Bangladesh (Cox’s Bazar), and Nigeria in the first cohort and South Sudan, Lebanon and Syria in the second cohort. The research agenda presented here highlights ERICC’s co-constructed national research priorities within Jordan, the rationale and factors that inform these priorities, and research plans to enact the agenda moving forward.
