ON THE ELIMINATION
OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION
CONSIDERATION OF REPORTS SUBMITTED BY STATES PARTIES UNDER ARTICLE
9 OF THE CONVENTION
Concluding observations of the Committee on the
Elimination of Racial Discrimination
At its 1196th meeting, held on 10 March 1997 (see CERD/C/SR.1196),
the Committee reviewed the implementation of the Convention by
Jordan based upon its previous reports (CERD/C/130/Add.3 and CERD/C/183/Add.1)
and their consideration by the Committee (see CERD/C/SR.864).
The Committee noted with regret that no report had been submitted
to the Committee since 1989.
The Committee welcomed, however, the presence of a delegation
of the State party at its meeting and the oral information provided
on legal developments relevant to the implementation of the Convention
in the State party. The Committee welcomed, in particular, the
information that Jordan will resume its reporting obligations
under the Convention shortly.
The Committee therefore invites the State party to submit its
next report in time for the fifty-first session of the Committee
and to include in that report information on the legislative,
judicial, administrative or other measures giving effect to the
Convention, in accordance with the Committee's general guidelines
regarding the form and contents of reports to be submitted by
a State party under article 9, paragraph 1, of the Convention.
