Women's access to Justice in Jordan

10.05.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

This report analyses the status of women’s access to justice in Jordan, with a particular focus on the Shari’a court system. Through a review of relevant laws, research, and international conventions, it identifies legal, social, and institutional barriers to women’s access to justice. At the same time, it traces gaps in the justice system related to: legal aid services; economic and human resources; and gender sensitivity. The report proposes a framework of inquiry - based on international experiences - that allows for systematic analysis of women’s access to justice in Jordan. Additionally, it offers key analytical recommendations for facilitating women’s access to justice.
