Abstract

This case study describes the use of the IASC Guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergency Settings in Jordan. The fieldwork was carried out 17–27 August 2008 in Jordan and involved discussions with representatives of humanitarian organisations and UN agencies in Amman and Zarqa. This paper describes the ways in which the guidelines have been disseminated in Jordan and how they have ‘added value’ within the context of the Iraqi refugee crisis in Jordan. It also describes the factors that have hindered the full implementation of the guidelines.
