Study visit to French Institutions: Introduction to the evaluation system of public policies
Under the scope of the EU project “Strengthening the institutional capacity of the House of Representatives in Jordan", Altair Asesores organised a study visit to France from 20 to 23 February 2017.
The aim of the visit was to acquaint the Jordanian Delegation, formed by Members of Parliament and staff from the House of Representatives, to the French evaluation system on the implementation of public policies and legislation. To do so, the Delegation assisted to several very fruitful working sessions and seminars in the French Institutions and bodies: the National Assembly, with a special focus on the Committee for the Evaluation and Monitoring of Public Policies, the Senate, the Court of Auditors and France Stratégie, among others.

In the framework of the "Strengthening the Institutional Capacity of the House of Representatives in Jordan" project a study visit to the Swedish Parliament and other relevant institutions was organized from the 3rd to 6th of April 2017. The visit was aimed at introducing members of the Jordanian delegation to the Swedish experience on gender mainstreaming policies and legislation. In addition, the visit contributed to the exchange of experiences and enhanced the interaction between members of the two parliaments.
The study visit was tailored according to the main themes of particular interest to the MPs that are related to the questions of gender mainstreaming in public policies. Thus, the tour included visits to the Swedish Parliament, the Swedish Agency for Public Management, IDEA Organization and Färingsö prison.
