We are pleased to invite resettlement practitioners to take part in and benefit from two combined events focussing on operational resettlement work in Amman, Jordan during 2019
You are hereby welcome to sign up for:
Kick-Off meeting for EU-FRANK Pilots in MENA & Operational Meeting on Resettlement from Jordan
At the Kick-off meeting on 12 February, EU-FRANK will launch and introduce proposals for pilots related to resettlement from MENA in 2019. This includes, amongst other things, joint actions between EU Member States, and digital information sharing to enhance resettlement processes.
In conjunction with this meeting, on 13-14 February, EU-FRANK will also pilot an operational meeting concept focussing on resettlement from Jordan in 2019.
The key element of the Annual Operational Meeting on Resettlement on 13th-14th of February 2019 is to provide a significant platform for dialog, information exchange between Member States and relevant operational partners, to encourage and facilitate peer-learning and support between States, and ultimately increase the efficiency and quality of resettlement activities. This event will primarily focus on the following overall objectives:
- To identify and bring together EU MS+ practitioners with resettlement program to Jordan in 2019;
- To share common understanding of prevailing conditions in Jordan for 2019 and to facilitate resettlement out of country;
- To enable information exchange on planned resettlement activities among MS.
The meetings combine briefings from EU-FRANK and operational partners with interactive discussions and experience exchange between States. They also include on site observations of working facilities and the refugee situation. They are planned and delivered in consultation with UNHCR, IOM and EASO. An overview of planned agenda items for the two meetings can be found below. A more detailed agenda with an exact address for the meeting will be shared with registered participants in January.
12 February: Kick off meeting for EU-FRANK pilot activities in MENA 2019
13-14 February: Operational Meeting on Resettlement from Jordan 2019
Please note that EU-FRANK has the ambition to create, test and evaluate the Operational Meeting on Resettlement concept including an assessment of whether it can be adopted and organized also in other locations where many states are resettling from during the same calendar year, similar to Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Egypt or Uganda. The project expects participants to provide feedback on how they experienced the meeting concept and contents, to enable the project to further refine and evaluate this concept.
Resettlement experts from European countries (heads of units, program experts, mission leaders or alike), as well as operational stakeholders such as UNHCR, IOM, ICMC and EASO.
