In August 2017, Jordan banned a law that allowed rapists to escape punishment by marrying their victims. This was hot on the heels of Tunisia that repealed this law at the end of July, while Morocco overhauled its law in 2014 and Egypt repealed its law in 1999.
In 2016 we continued to work in accordance with our 2013 to 2022 strategic plan that includes the three programmatic areas: active citizenship, community security and influencing policy producing more than 20 reports, blogs and opinions pieces. In addition we adopted a new advocacy approach that focused more on on the dissemination of our research reports and advocacy activities to various stakeholders.
