Jordan is a country of both emigration and immigration flows, and its economic development is tightly coupled with the regional dynamics of migration and mobility. In addition, it is a high-profile destination for women, men, girls and boys from Asia and Africa who are subjected to trafficking for forced labour and domestic servitude in the country.
The Ministry of Social Development (MoSD) requested MIEUX's support to develop SOPs and guinding principes for two Victims of Trafficking (VoT) shelters in Amman to address shortcomings (e.g. length of stay in the shelter, type of support available).
This Action Supported the alignment of Jordan’s definition of THB to recognised international standardsand the improved understanding of practitioners to include child labour, sexual exploitation, begging and organ trafficking as other key aspects of THB. It has also improved capacities and internal skills of shelter staff in the delivery of effective care services for victims at central authority level and within the centres.
