The aim of this study is to shed light on the socio- political effects of the Syrian refugee crisis on Jordan. The study tackles the socio political impact of the flow of hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees to Jordan during the past nine years.

The study is based on a mixed approach, the descriptive and the historical. The results of the study show that the Syrian refugee crisis has politically and socially affected Jordan negatively. What makes matters worse and deepens the effects of the crisis in Jordan is the inability of the successive governments to deal strategically with the crisis. The study concluded with some suggested recommendations that may mitigate the negative impact of the crisis on Jordan.
