Regarding the low percentage of women representation in the local councils and local administration law, and building upon previous projects of political participation of women, KCC in partnership with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung has started this project to enhance and raise women representation in local elections to 30% instead of 25%.

In addition, Karak Castle Center has conducted a series of dialogue sessions with various personalities and institutions concerned and interested in the issue of political life in Jordan Including, The Ministry of Local Administration, civil society institutions, parliament, international organizations, political parties, and others.
