This study aims at analyzing the legal system for protection of individuals with disabilities in Jordan, especially after the ratification of the 2007 Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities by Jordan. Then, the Jordanian Kingdom presented three-step measures to guarantee the rights of disabled persons. First, it introduced specific laws into the national legal corpus. Secondly, it made up a three-year strategy to enhance the protection of this particular panel of the population. Thirdly, a special committee was established whose duty is to assess the adequacy of national laws to the International treaties.
