Place: Amman, Jordan
The aim of the gathering was to bring together key actors of Higher Education, from Germany and Jordan, to review the current situation of Syrian refugee students in the Hashemite Kingdom, and to strengthen the Jordanian universities in their role as humanitarian actors.
GIZ and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) are currently running the program “Higher Education creates Prospects for young Syrians and Jordanians” (JOSY) which is financed by the German Ministry for Cooperation (BMZ). JOSY started in 2015 and has now more than 80 scholarship holders, half Jordanians and half Syrians.
