Support to the Mobility partnership between the European Union and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (JEMPAS)
Objective: The objective of the project is to support the implementation of the Mobility Partnership between the EU and Jordan with a specific focus on strengthening the capacity of the government to develop and implement their national migration policy.
Donor: European Commission
Summary: JEMPAS is a technical assistance project with the overall aim to support the implementation of the Mobility Partnership (MP) between the EU and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan . Both parties signed the MP in October 2014.
Following the signature of the MP, the European Commission’s Directorate General for Development and Cooperation earmarked the amount of 2,5 million Euros for a project in support of the MP with Jordan. The project developed by ICMPD in close cooperation with the Jordanian authorities is built around two thematic components: a) engagement with Jordanian expatriates abroad and b) addressing trafficking in human beings.
In keeping with the partnership approach, JEMPAS will benefit from close coordination and peer-to-peer exchanges between the Jordanian authorities and experts from the involved EU Member States’ administrations, namely Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Portugal and Romania.
Implementing agency: ICMPD
