The Amman Center for Peace and Development (ACPD) is a non-profit organization, which was established in 1999, that focuses on strengthening civil society capacity within the nation and overcoming regional divides to seek collaborative solutions to common problems.

The main mandate of the Center is to encourage dialogue between the peoples of the Middle East and improve understanding and tolerance. Only through dialogue and positive engagement it will be possible to overcome hostility and conflict.

Based on such convictions ACPD has organized and taken part in tens of workshops and seminars, the purpose of which was to encourage Jordanian, Arabs and Israelis to air their concerns and to engage each others in a meaningful dialogue based on mutual respect.

A key aspect of ACPD’s success is its unique ability to bring people together across national and international divides.

ACPD is the only Jordanian non-governmental organization actively working with representatives from the entire region, including Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Israel.
