EU adopts new actions to enforce rule of law in #Jordan bringing the overall support to the country to nearly €2 billion

| October 23, 2018

Commissioner Hahn signed a new €50 million programme to support Jordan‘s justice sector reform efforts to enhance the rule of law, effectiveness of the justice sector and access to justice. With this programme, the EU has provided nearly €2 billion in support to Jordan since 2011. At the signing ceremony in Amman, Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn said: “The EU has been a strong supporter of Jordan’s justice reforms over a number of years, because, as His Majesty King Abdullah II has said, the rule of law is the guarantor of any individual and public rights, providing the effective framework for an efficient public administration and the basis for a safe and fair society. This €50m programme takes EU support to Jordan since 2011 to nearly €2bn of total financial support. The EU remains committed to keep supporting Jordan and its ambitious reforms at this difficult time”.
