About Us

Vision Center for Strategic and Development Studies was created in 2008 - and has since carried numerous projects in Jordan and the region.

Visions Center for Strategic and Development Studies is a unique non-profit organization striving to help achieve the objectives of economic, social, and political development which would improve the living standards for citizens of the Arab world. One of its missions is to build and share knowledge capital in planning & development so as to empower Arab communities to excel. It focuses on conducting local and regional development projects through established methodologies and principles in both the theoretical and practical dimensions of scientific research. Although our organisation and the majority of our work is locally based in Amman, Jordan we also have experience on a regional and international level i.e. Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey, Cyprus, Oman, and Emirates. We provide consultation and trainings in various fields (which shall be identified below). Additionally, we conduct public opinion polls which adhere to international standards and delivery methods, and are credible and transparent.

Visions Center is about adapting global thinking to local conditions and then sharing our knowledge to empower communities to excel.
