- In order to respond organically and sustainably to this complex of needs, the JRP identifies three specific objectives for the “Social Protection and Justice” sector:’
- Strengthening national and subnational social protection systems in line with international protection standards (comprehensive, transparent and equitable), in order to ensure the fulfillment of the rights of refugees and vulnerable Jordanians and the promotion of a life in dignity for everyone. [Social services]
- Improvement of inclusive social protection and poverty reduction mechanisms for refugees and vulnerable Jordanians affected by the crisis, in order to ensure the satisfaction of essential needs taking into account the specific needs of women, girls, men and boys. [Social care]
- Ensure fast and quality access to the justice system in Jordan for women, girls, boys and men in governorates affected by the Syrian crisis [Justice].
- Among the main problems identified by the JRP in this sector, the following can be mentioned:
- non-self-sufficiency (which implies a strong dependence on humanitarian aid);
- difficulties in meeting essential survival needs, including a decent home, access to food, water and sanitation;
- child labour;
- widespread cases of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV);
- violence against minors;
- issues relating to mental health and psychosocial well-being;
- the marginalization and isolation of many social categories, especially people with disabilities and the elderly, and
- issues related to the lack of certainty with respect to property rights.
