2012 Analysis

Jordan voted in favor of all the Syria resolutions considered by the Council and also supported the resolution establishing a Special Rapporteur mandate on Belarus. Jordan abstained, however, on the resolutions on Sri Lanka and Iran, and rejected amendments to improve the Libya resolution in March 2012.

Jordan voted in favor of all the resolutions focusing on the human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories.

Jordan did not support any of the key joint statements on country situations made at the Council. In 2012 Jordan did co-sponsor 21 country-specific resolutions under agenda items 1, 4, 7 and 10.

Jordan's intervention in debates on country situations was limited mainly to the Syrian crisis. Jordan could improve its engagement in the Council's work on country situations by expanding its involvement beyond the Syrian crisis and supporting efforts to hold other governments to account as it did in the case of Belarus.
