This policy brief presents the preliminary findings from WANA Institute field research in Ajloun about the relation between human security, state-centric security policies, and efforts for preventing violent extremism. The brief offers unique insights into the perceptions of Ajloun residents of these relationships and provides analytical insights into understanding how the relation between citizens and state actors has affected tensions that  escalated earlier this year in Ajloun.

This brief is part of the regional project “Towards More Effective Human Security Approaches in the Context of the Emerging Threat of Violent Extremism in Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia.” Findings from the briefs on Karak, Tafileh, Mafraq, Russeifa, will feed into analytical research papers, which will be published later this year. Over the coming months, the WANA Institute will publish the remaining policy brief on the Jordanian Mafraq governorate, as well as similar briefs on the field work conducted in Tunisia and Lebanon.
