Abstract

The Kingdom of Jordan currently hosts 642,868 Syrian refugees, including the first and one of the largest camps housing civilians who fled the Syrian Civil War. In March 2016, a team of graduate students from Texas A&M University’s Bush School of Government and Public Service set out to examine the role and performance of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in responding to this increasingly complex humanitarian crisis.
