The Amman Center for Human Rights Studies is pleased to present its 20th newsletter which is, as an exception, an annual edition. ACHRS has had a hectic year due to the turbulences countries in the Middle East and North Africa are experiencing. Despite calamities and difficulties the contemporary situations throughout the MENA region can be seen as a turn towards improved empowerment of the people, such as the Yemeni, Libyan and Egyptian population, who persisted in their demands for a democratic, just and transparent government. Still, to live up to these words a lot has to be done. ACHRS, together with its partner organizations, did its best to support these calls by organizing trainings, participating in conferences and monitoring elections. This newsletter hopes to give color to ACHRS various activities by subdividing a Women, MENA, Death Penalty, Global, Urgent and Praise section. Because, genuine progression is driven by open dialogue, ACHRS is always open to your suggestions. Future newsletter will again be published on quarterly basis.
