The event is at Bergen Global's venue in Jekteviksbakken 31. You can also follow on Zoom. Free breakfast is served.

The EU has over the past years increasingly externalised its borders outside its own territory. Externalisation in a nutshell denotes the relocation of border controls and other migration management functions to so-called third countries.

How does this play out in Jordan—host of more than 600,000 Syrian refugees?

In this breakfast meeting, Zoë Jordan will analyse the implications of the EU migration policy for education and employment in Jordan. Cathrine Talleraas and Sarah Tobin will also join the conversation.
