Jordan Daily – Jordan is ready to present its fourth Universal Periodic Review (UPR) on human rights in Jordan to the UN, the director of the Human Rights Unit at the Prime Minister’s Office said on Sunday.

Dr. Khalil Al-Abdallat told Radio Al-Balad that the report, which was prepared in consultation with various national and civil society institutions, covers the legal, legislative and general issues related to human rights in Jordan, as well as the specific rights of different groups such as women, children, persons with disabilities and refugees.

He said the report, which was delivered to the UN Human Rights Council through the Jordanian mission in Geneva, will be discussed on January 25, 2024, in the 45th session of the council.

The report also highlights the best practices and challenges that Jordan faced in implementing the human rights recommendations that it received from the previous review in 2019, Al-Abdallat said.

He added that more than 63 submissions from coalitions and civil society institutions were also received by the council, containing more than 175 recommendations for improving human rights in Jordan.

Al-Abdallat said the government and civil society have a real partnership in the human rights field, and that they will hold dialogues before and after the report’s discussion to coordinate their roles and responsibilities in implementing the recommendations.
