Forced Migration in Jordan

Reception Policies and Settlement Strategies
  • By Norig Neveu, Jalal Al Husseini, Valentina Napolitano
Product Description

With its long history of receiving and settling migrant populations, Jordan sheds important light on key issues around forced migration in the Middle East. Yet very little scholarship has been devoted to analysing the policies and strategies that Jordan has used as a host country.

This book is an original study of the processes of reception and integration in Jordan. Part One investigates the criteria for integration and exclusion imposed by Jordan and international humanitarian organisations on different groups of refugees. This section covers the policies surrounding access to education, health, social services and work, and the economic and political factors that drive them. Part Two analyses how state policy impacts the solidarity networks between different migrant communities and examines the different political, social, religious and family networks that are set up in camps and urban settings. Part Three turns to how migrants shape the Jordanian cityscape and geography and contribute to the cities that host them. Examining diverse groups of refugees, from the 1948 Palestinian refugees to the Syrians arriving after 2011, and smaller but rising numbers from Sudan and Yemen, this book is the first to study the long-term impact of multiple immigration flows on Jordanian society and will advance discussion on migration across disciplines.
