This literature-review examines the impact of water politics on migration in Jordan, focusing on how water scarcity, particularly as it is exacerbated by climate change, is affecting the country’s stability and its relationships with other nations. Through an analysis of the interplay between water, politics, and migration in Jordan, this review argues that unless the country addresses its water scarcity issues, it will face severe challenges in managing migration and preserving its international standing. The review sheds light on the complex and interrelated issues of water politics and migration in Jordan and provides important insights for future research.
