Ammon News - A new public opinion poll released by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), in partnership with NAMA Strategic Intelligence Solutions, demonstrates that 92 percent of Jordanians say that they are sympathetic towards refugees, according to a statement issued by the UN body on Wednesday.

The survey, which covered representative samples comprising of 3,229 Jordanians from Amman (1,754), Irbid (916), Karak (299), and Mafraq (260), is the third wave of a bi-annual survey conducted by NAMA SIS on behalf of UNHCR examining the perception of refugees among the Jordanian public.

Key findings also highlighted that 76 percent of Jordanians believed that the government’s approach towards refugees had been positive, echoing the results of surveys conducted in June 2021 and December 2020.

"Jordanians remain steadfast in their commitment to helping refugees," said the UNHCR representative in Jordan Dominik Bartsch. "But as refugees become increasingly intertwined in Jordanian society, we can no longer just consider their needs in isolation," he concluded.
