Received Sub-Committee visit
Jordan tabled voluntary pledges and commitments in support for its candidacy for membership for the period 2009-2011 on 17 April 2009.
In the document, Jordan describes the actions that it has taken to integrate international human rights norms and principles into national law and practice, and also outlines its cooperation with the UN human rights system.
The document only offered 4 concrete pledges, including: to host an annual meeting of the Asia Pacific Forum of National Human Rights Institutions; to submit all outstanding periodic reports to relevant committees; and to continue to implement Special Procedures recommendations.
An analysis of steps taken by Jordan in fulfilment of its international pledges shows that it has presented 2 of its periodic treaty reports on time, while three are overdue and one was submitted late (for the current reporting cycles). One report is more than 12 years overdue.
