Amman Center for Human Rights Studies (ACHRS) is an independent non-governmental organization advocating for the enhancement of democracy and human rights in Jordan and the MENA region. The center’s five priorities are the right to life, the right to speak,
the right to think, the right to participate, and women’s rights. The Center works to achieve its goals by lobbying; spreading awareness via conferences and symposiums;
writing official statements, declarations, reports, articles, and booklets; and establishing and maintaining relations to international organizations and embassies.
Furthermore, ACHRS has special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC) which means that the center participates in
various UN conferences and makes annual reports for the UN, for example through the Universal Periodic Review
