​Jordan's policy to provide limited worker rights to Syrian refugees went into effect in April 2016. A wide range of stakeholders have supported the effort to formalise Syrian labour. Official data suggests that the Syrian refugee crisis has had little impact on leading macroeconomic indicators. Yet it is unlikely that the influx of such a large number of people has not affected labour market conditions. The paper reviews the performance of macroeconomic and Syrian refugee financial outcome indicators during the first year of the labour integration policy and the Jordan Compact.
