The 5th International Border Management Conference took place in Amman, Jordan, on 23 and 24 November 2022. The Conference was organised by ICMPD under the Patronage of the Minister of Interior of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, H.E. Mazin Abdellah Al Farrayeh.
The conference was co-funded by the European Union, the Federal Republic of Germany, the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Kingdom of Denmark and the Swiss Confederation via a number of projects and actions implemented by ICMPD.
Based on the principle of “joint leadership and shared responsibility,” the two-day conference explored the potential of border management as an enabler of partnerships, capacity, security and development and brought together a diversity of public and private actors within a host country where the safe and orderly movement of people and goods across borders is a high priority. With over 150 registered attendees, the conference fostered a thorough exchange of views, ideas and demand-driven solutions to the challenges and opportunities of integrated border management.
All speakers agreed that efficient and effective border management is essential to cope with today’s challenges and hybrid threats and such conferences are fundamental to guarantee that the latest knowledge available and mutual priorities are well communicated among all parties involved.
