In this submission, Amnesty International evaluates the implementation of a number of recommendations that Jordan previously accepted, including in relation to freedom of expression, torture and other ill-treatment, discrimination and violence against women, including honour killings, and foreign workers. With regard to the current human rights situation, Amnesty International raises concerns about freedom of expression, association and assembly; torture, ill-treatment and detention without charge or trial; refugees from Syria; discrimination and violence against women; and migrant workers’ rights.
