The Information and Research Center – King Hussein Foundation (IRCKHF) has a long history of researching and advocating for children and youth’s rights. The idea for this advocacy effort was conceived based on the concluding observations of the Committee of the Rights of the Child (CRC) to the Jordanian Government in 2014. Specifically, the CRC's recommendations to address the discrimination of the most vulnerable orphans, the children and youth deprived of family ties. The collaboration with Sakeena Association enabled IRCKHF to gain in-depth knowledge of the discrimination patterns that affect this vulnerable population. This, in turn, informed and made it possible to refine the research tools used throughout the advocacy. Stakeholders reported that Empowering Care Leavers in Jordan campaign is timely and of great relevance to the Jordanian community. This advocacy provides an excellent example of the importance of in-depth research for advancing advocacy efforts.
