WMD and Security Forum – 2018 Session

Implications of US Withdrawal From the Nuclear Agreement with Iran

Professor Mohammed Katatsheh

Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II School of International Studies


The United States has withdrawn form JCPOA describing this agreement as threatening the stability of the Middle East, Supporting Hamas, the Taliban and al Qaeda, financing terrorism and threatening US security and stability. President Donald Trump blamed his predecessor, President Obama, by referring to the agreement as <<disastrous.>>  The US decision to withdraw from the agreement has negative repercussions, with possible impact on relationship between the US administration and its European allies. Obviously, Trump’s decision would affect the credibility of the United States of America with its allies and its failure to comply with concluded agreements, portraying Washington as irresponsible  party.

سرايا - قال رئيس لجنة الاقتصاد والاستثمار النيابية خير أبو صعيليك إنه لا يجوز النظر إلى قانون ضريبة الدخل كأداة لتمويل خزينة الدولة، بل أن تكون أداة من أدوات التنمية المستدامة والتحفيز الاقتصادي واداة لتوزيع الدخل على الفئات المختلفة.

وأكد أبو صعيليك في محاضرة له ألقاها في الجامعة الأردنية مساء الإثنبن أن جيب المواطن ليس الحل الانسب، حيث نخشى في هذا الوقت أن تتولد القناعة لدى الاردنيين بأن القانون سيحل مشاكل الأردن الإقتصادية.

وتساءل أبو صعيليك في كلمته عن العنوان الاقتصادي لحكومة الدكتور عمر الرزاز، مؤكداً أن 'حكومة الدكتور عبدالله النسور كان لديها عنوان اقتصادي واضح باسم رؤية 2025، كذلك كان لحكومة الدكتور هاني الملقي عنوان اقتصادي تحت اسم خطة تحفيز النمو الاقتصادي'.

وبيّن أن بعد التعديل الحكومي يجب على الحكومة تقديم عنوانها ورؤيتها الاقتصادية، مشددا على أنه ولغاية اللحظة لم تحمل الحكومة رؤية اقتصاديّة.

وأوضح أبو صعيليك أنه وبالرغم من ذلك، يجب ان يكون هنالك معالجة واصلاح للتشوه في العبء الضريبي، فاليوم نتحدث عن مجمل العبء الضريبي يصل إلى ربع الناتج الاجمالي، مشيراً الى ان إيرادات الخزينة من ضريبة الدخل بلغت نحو 938 مليون العام الماضي بينما من المبيعات بلغت 3 مليارات دينار.

وبين ان الاقتصاد ليس في غرفة الموتى كما يتداول بل لا زال ديناميكيا ومؤشرات النمو ومع ضعفها إلا أنها بقيت إيجابية، رغم الظروف المحيطة وخطوط التواصل المغلقة مع سوريا والعراق.

وأضاف في متن القانون لدينا ملاحظات، منها عدم قبول الاعفاءات على اصل المبلغ حيث سنرفضها في مجلس النواب، سنقبل الاعفاء فقط على الغرامات والفوائد على تلك الاعفاءات.

بدوره قال رئيس لجنة الاستثمار في مجلس الأعيان الدكتور أمية طوقان إن مشروع قانون ضريبة الدخل الحالي، مقصود منه اصلاح التشوهات بالعبء الضريبة، فيتحمله الغني بدلا من الفقير مراعيا بذات الوقت الطبقات الاقتصادية المختلفة.

وبين طوقان أن الادارة الضريبية فيها تشوهات من أبرز ملامحها التهرب والتجنب الضريبي حيث هنالك مواد في القانون الجديد تحاول معالجتها.

وأكد طوقان في مداخلته على ضرورة عدم النظر تجاه المشروع كاستهداف لجيب المواطن بل هو جزء من عملية الاصلاح الاقتصادي المتفق عليه مع البنك الدولي

Workshop “towards a nextGen group of experts on security and WMD Issues “

Amman (Jordan) November




Dr. Robert Jenkins, the UNICEF Jordan country representative, delivered a lecture titled: “Volunteerism Empowering Youth in Jordan for Better Opportunities for Employment” on October 8th, 2018 at The Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II School of International Studies.

The youth nowadays face various barriers in relation to education and employment. Many of them are not enrolled in educational institutions or workplaces, which may curb their progressing process. Thus, Dr. Jenkins emphasized the importance of acquiring soft skills in particular in order for the youth to engage in the community.   

He also highlighted that education and employment must be blended, where education alone is not sufficient. For example, Tatawa3, an application for voluntary work, provides the youth with volunteering opportunities to enhance their skills that the workplaces require of job seekers.

Towards the end of the lecture, Dr. Jenkins threw the following question at the audience: “Is it a helpful thing to provide the youth with these volunteering opportunities?” The majority of the respondents agreed that volunteering is critical for the youth. However, they mentioned some obstacles that may hinder gaining such opportunities such as the lack of internet access. He also engaged the audience in thinking about another issue, which is: “Why women are highly engaged in education, but their engagement in employment does not amount to the same level?”

An American Studies panel chaired by Dr. Naser Tahboub was held at the Prince Al Hussein Bin Abdullah II School of International Studies last Tuesday. The four participating speakers in the panel (Dr.Debbie Abuelghanam, Mr. Alain Mcnamara, Mr.Peter Neisuler, and Dr. Allison Hodgkins) focused on the importance of the American Studies Program and the American-Jordanian relationship.   

The American Studies Program is a multidisciplinary program. It comprises many fields of knowledge such as economy, history, media…etc. Students of this program will benefit from gaining many experiences and skills including but not limited to research skills, cultural awareness, and critical thinking.

Furthermore, one example of the programs that support and can further one’s academic and cultural knowledge about America is the Fulbright Program Opportunities for Jordanian Graduate Students. This binational and exchange program, which was found in 1996, helps students to build empathy between the American and Jordanian cultures, share experiences, and widen students’ horizons. Therefore, this program promotes human resources in both countries. Such programs are not only knowledge oriented, they are also life changing programs where one can study in the other country and get involved in learning about the culture by dealing with people on a daily basis.

Mr. Neisuler stressed that the bilateral relationship between Jordan and America has been over 70 years. It has not been only a military and security partnership, where part of this relationship was education.

This collaboration with Jordan is based on some cornerstones. For example, America maintains a good relationship with Jordan due to its strategic role and importance in the region. Jordan is also a great ally of America. Moreover, King Abdullah II has great efforts in fighting terrorism. Therefore, the aim of this collaboration is to achieve and advance peace and prosperity for both countries.

Dr. Hodgkins singled out the American foreign policy in the Middle East (ME).
