Abdulrahman Shdeifat

HRD, Member

Abdulrahman Shdaifat is a Jordanian human rights defender, an anti-corruption activist, and a member of the Hirak movement, a popular social justice protest movement in Jordan advocating for reform and human rights for the Jordanian people. Since 2018, Abdulrahman Shdaifat has been facing a travel ban from the Jordanian Security Forces, in addition to restrictions on work, political activity and social media pages.


Despite constitutional reforms in 2011, numerous laws continue to restrict freedom of association, peaceful assembly and expression. These restrictions were reinforced over the past five years under the guise of national security and the fight against terrorism. As a result, human rights defenders (HRDs) continue to face significant challenges.
