This study builds on two prior assessments carried out by REACH which mapped and identified the sector-specific needs of self-settled Syrian refugees living in northern Jordan. The assessments, conducted from August 2013 to March 2014, concentrated on the dynamics of refugee-host community relations and explore the factors influencing tension and destabilization. This report focuses on tensions relating to education in the 160 host communities assessed across the governorates of Ajloun, Balqa, Irbid, Jarash, Al Mafraq and Zarqa in northern Jordan.
