Rabat – An international workshop on “the access to justice for migrant” is scheduled to take place December 8th and 9th at the Sofitel Jardine des Roses Hotel in Rabat.
The two-day event has been organized, in part, by Morocco’s National Human Rights Council (CNDH) and the Organization International La Francophone (OIF).
The event is focused on shedding important light on the obstacles that immigrants to Morocco encounter. Another critical objective of the workshop is to evaluate efforts that have been made to alleviate these obstacles by the Moroccan government, national institutions and civic society with the intent to enhance future efforts to provide easy access to the justice system for all new Moroccans.
Protecting the quality of life for new citizens is a fundamental identifier of any civilized society. The design of this workshop brings a host of civil rights activists together under one roof to address systematic problems within the Moroccan immigration machinery by newcomers and brainstorm effective and timely solutions to improve their status.
The workshop’s opening session will start at 9am on Friday in the presence of CNDH’s president, Driss El Yazami. Other dignitaries present include representative of Ministry of Justice, Lauren Gimnez, representative of OIF and Francois Crepeau, Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants.
