Right to Inheritance

15.07.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

The main objective of the practice is the improvement of economic empowerment and the respect of economic women’s rights in Jordan, through an advocacy campaign for the right to inheritance. JOHUD in collaboration with the Arab Women Legal Network (AWLN) conducted a lobbying meeting including members from main stakeholders, decision makers and legal bodies in Jordan, for the formulation of the advocacy messages on women’s inheritance rights. This allowed to obtain their support in the community outreach awareness sessions and to cooperate in the dissemination of awareness messages and development of communication tools.

A national advocacy committee of inheritance was established including 20 main bodies from the Ministry of Justice, media and journalists, lawyers, judges and organisations working on women rights. Regular meetings were conducted with community leaders to gain their support at local level.

This practice has been selected within the framework of the CSO WINS project "Capacity-building in the Southern Mediterranean to Open Policy Dialogue and MonitoringforWomen IN Society" with the support of the European Union’s Neighborhood Civil Society Facility.
