VNR: The Euro-Mediterranean partnership: bringing people closer together


Ten years ago the EU with its Mediterranean Partners, set out an ambitious plan to strengthen and develop the EuroMed region. Its ultimate ambition: to bring people together, to turn this region into an area of dialogue and co-operation guaranteeing peace, stability and prosperity. Despite regional conflicts, this process continues - The EuroMed partnership is the only forum where all the ministers of the region meet - outside of the Middle East Peace Process, including both the Palestinians and Israelis. This video focuses on the Middle Eastern Kingdom of Jordan, a microcosm for some of the challenges the Euro-Med partnership faces in the coming decade. Despite recent reforms and growth - debt, unemployment and poverty remain fundamental issues in Jordan and education is key for success. The video profiles one vocational education programme in Irbid, Jordan which targets some of Jordan's 100,000 school dropouts, to get them back into school and society. These Education programmes work in the long term to offset illegal migration, by providing children with real opportunities to become skilled workers in their own country or across the region. Supporting economic transition is key to the success of many of the initiatives under the Euro- Mediterranean partnership. The video features one Jordanian business exporting to Europe and highlights their experiences of dealing with the complicated EU market. The video also includes an exclusive interview with His Royal Highness Prince El Hassan bin Talal of Jordan at the opening of an art exhibition. Held by six European and Middle Eastern artists it aims to bring people together across cultures and paint a new image of the region. The video ends by showing the inauguration of the Anna Lindh foundation for Dialogue and Culture in Alexandrria, Egypt
