The International Republican Institute (IRI) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, organization dedicated to advancing freedom and democracy worldwide. Since 1983, IRI has worked to develop democratic institutions and ideals, carrying out a variety of international programs to promote freedom, self-government and the rule of law worldwide. IRI provides technical assistance in the areas of political party strengthening, developing civic institutions and open elections, promoting democratic governance and advancing the rule of law. Since 2005, IRI’s program in Jordan has focused on connecting citizens with government by promoting democratic governance practices, strengthening political parties, and building the political skills of women through IRI’s Women’s Leadership Academy. At the local level, IRI supports citizen committees and develops citizens’ advocacy skills as well as working closely with elected municipal officials to increase their responsiveness to constituents through conducting outreach activities like town hall meetings, city clean-up days, and participatory planning/budgeting sessions. Through earlier qualitative research, IRI identified that youth in Jordan are hesitant to engage in political processes due to lack of knowledge or even from misinformation. In order to provide accurate information on democratic institutions in a consumable and scalable format, IRI would like to work with a professional video production company to develop short videos to be distributed online and promoted through IRI platforms. IRI seeks the services of a creative video production company or individual to partner with our IRI Jordan team to produce informative and engaging civic education video content.
