National Campaign on PwD Rights: Jordan’s Disability Law and the CRPD Concluding Observations

2018

With the support of IM Swedish Development Partner, the Information and Research Center – King Hussein Foundation (IRCKHF) has been given the opportunity to continue its work on researching and advocating for the rights of People with Disabilities. 

The overall objective of this project is to raise awareness about the rights of people with disabilities entails not only working with rights holders or society or government, but with all actors.  Only then will there be positive change in regards to increasing rights, awareness about rights, and changing the perception of society in regards to people with disabilities. The project will focus on the new PwD law 20/2017 and CRPD concluding observations, using the social media channels and conducting three outreach sessions.
