SUNY/CID NEWS STORIES 2006
On July 22, 2006, SUNY/Jordan held a one day retreat for the Jordanian Parliament's newly established Civil Society Organization (CSO) Unit. The mission of this new unit is to establish better relationships between the Jordanian Parliament and CSOs, and to strengthen collaboration between the two stakeholders in addressing public policy issues. The event brought together members of the CSO Unit, including the Unit's Director, Dr. Khalid Abu-Rabie, and representatives from Jordanian CSOs. The retreat served to discuss the mission and objectives of the CSO Unit; to jump start the CSO Unit's activities and established initial contact between the CSO Unit and CSO representatives.
