The European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) demands continued and sustainable involvement by the EU and Jordan to achieve the objectives outlined in the EU-Jordan ENP Action Plan [206 KB] . This requires absolute dedication by Jordan's governmental and civil society institutions.
The EU welcomes the vital role of civil society organizations in recognizing the main priorities for action and pressing the implementation of the EU-Jordan Action Plan forward. Hence, the EU exerts significant effort to engage civil society in policy advocacy and political reform and seeks to promote policy dialogue between local authorities and civil society representatives.
The EU Delegation to Jordan aims to establish open dialogue with local non-state actors and values their input in regards to the implementation of the Action Plan and the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI).
EU-Jordan relations are further institutionalised through the EU-Jordan Association Agreement, which is the legal basis of the EU-Jordan relationship and which entered into force in May 2002 with the goal of integrating Jordan into European economic and social structure.
