Peace, Security, Stability and Migration - Jordan-en
Jordan is a stable country in the midst of a turbulent region. It plays an important role in preventing, countering and fighting violent extremism and terrorism. Furthermore, it hosts one of the largest number of registered refugees per capita in the world. The Netherlands aims to support Jordan as a host country by creating livelihood opportunities and improving legal access for vulnerable people, including refugees, host communities, young people and women. Under security, Jordan and the Netherlands partner and exchange knowledge in the following areas: Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (P/CVE), border management and defence cooperation.
Siren Associates: Shoulder-to-shoulder
This project aims to improve the delivery of community safety services to refugees and vulnerable host communities in Jordan. It helps the Public Security Directorate in improving the integration of police services with other relevant service providers. In addition, enhancing community safety and cohesion will help reduce incidents of violence. Therefore, this project also builds the capabilities of communities (particularly youth, women, and Syrian refugees) to actively participate in addressing community issues.
IFC, ILO, UNHCR, UNICEF, World Bank: Prospects Partnership
The partnership aims to improve the prospects and self-resilience of host communities and refugees alike. It is part of a wider global partnership involving eight countries.

International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD): Document Security Jordan
This border management project forms an integral part of the security cooperation between Jordan and the Netherlands. The Dutch supported “Document Security Jordan” initiative will function as a fully integrated element of ICMPD’s project “Integrated Border Management Jordan” which is funded by the European Union. These two projects will greatly support Jordan to control and manage its borders to ensure greater security for its citizens and visitors. The activities will fully take into account the specificities of Jordan to ensure the long-term sustainability of the project’s achievements.
