Workshop on “the Core International Human Rights Treaties”

On April 21, 2013, JNCHR, in cooperation with the American Bar Association ABA, organized a 2-day workshop on “the Core International Human Rights Treaties”. The said event took place at al Zarqa Chamber of Commerce and it was well-attended with a number of lawyers in the Governorate of Zarqa.

The workshop aimed to familiarize the participants with the Core International Human Rights Treaties that have been ratified by Jordan and published in the Official Gazette, the guarantees of a fair trial and the principles of due process, the independence of the Judiciary, as well as Jordan’s’ obligations under the International Human Rights Law.

The event also intended to empower the lawyers and enhance their capacity on how to refer to the relevant provisions of the various international legal instruments as a ground of their appeals before the domestic courts.

This workshop is part of a series of workshops that will be implemented by JNCHR for lawyers in all the Governorate of the Kingdom.
