“This report is the result of unprecedented quantitative and qualitative research on the working and living conditions of migrant workers in the agricultural sector in Jordan, and serves as the first stage of a broader project to promote and protect the rights of migrant workers in this sector. The study has been funded by the European Union, coordinated by ARCS-Culture and Development, and implemented by Tamkeen Fields for Aid. It is based on individual interviews with 324 agricultural migrant workers, 17 field visits to work sites, and 12 interviews with main stakeholders, including ministries, farmers’ associations, embassies and international organisations. All research was conducted in full cooperation with the Ministry of Labour, the Ministry of Agriculture, and farmers’ associations.”
