Program Goals

Support activities to develop the Government of Jordan’s capability, including its legal framework and the technical capacity of key stakeholders, to address transnational crime. Further, work to build law enforcement capacity to address and prevent gender-based violence.

Program Components/Accomplishments

The INL program is a critical part of the U.S. strategy to strengthen the Government of Jordan’s capacity to address transnational crime and gender-based violence. There are three central components of the INL Jordan program: 1) Anti-Money Laundering/Counter Financing of Terror (AML/CFT); 2) Gender-Based Violence (GBV) prevention; and 3) Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) enforcement.

  • Anti Money Laundering: The INL program provides training, equipment, and other technical assistance to AML/CFT stakeholders, to include in particular the Jordanian Anti-Money Laundering Unit given its status as a new institution with a mandate specifically targeted at the enforcement of newly adopted AML/CFT laws in Jordan.

  • Gender-Based Violence: INL will provide assistance to law enforcement and related agencies to: 1) eliminate conditions which are conducive to gender-based violence; 2) increase police capacity to investigate cases of violence; and 3) facilitate protection and services for victims.

  • Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement: INL provides training and equipment to support the Jordan Standards and Metrology Organization (JSMO) in order to promote the enforcement of IPR protection and enforcement.
