Rabat – The British embassy in Rabat has put out a call for concept notes for an upcoming project on human rights in Morocco.
The announcement appeared on their website Tuesday. The page calls for concept notes from Moroccan Civil Society Organizations to aid in a project to gauge human rights in the Kingdom.
The project will be broken down into four main themes; Freedom of Expression and Assembly, Children’s Rights, Protection and Promotion of Women’s Rights and the Rights of People with Disabilities.
The embassy describes the project as a supportive measure “to enable Morocco to meet its OPCAT (Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture) commitments, including through police reforms.”
Budget for the project is projected at approximately GBP 80,000. It will be conducted over a period of eight months, running from May-December of the current year.
Directions for submitting a concept note are provided on the website, along with an invitation to all Moroccan human rights organizations and NGOs who are active in the field of promoting human rights in the country to tender submissions.
The deadline to submit concept notes is April 19, 2017. More information is available on the embassy’s website.
