CNDH organizes seminars on "Protecting Human Rights within the context of Migration"

As part of its monthly program "Thursday of Protection", the National Human Rights Council (CNDH) will organize online seminars on "Protecting Human Rights within the context of Migration".

The first seminar will be organized on Thursday 26 May 2022, at 6:30 pm. It will be live on the CNDH’s Facebook page. It will address the National Migration and Asylum Policy and its outcome.

Mrs. Amina Bouayach, CNDH Chairperson, will launch this event.

It is part of the preparation of the outcome of the National Migration and Asylum Policy and defining the measures to be implemented to face persistent challenges impeding the effectiveness of the right of all foreigners in Morocco.

Stakeholders will discuss the outcome of the national strategy for migration and asylum, considering that international organizations, representatives of governments, associations and researchers have converged and crossed attitudes on this issue.

The program of this seminar will be scheduled as follows:
- Mr. Ahmed Skim, Director of Migration affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, will address a summary of the important achievements of migration policy in Morocco since 2013.
- Mr. Mamadou Boye Diallo, Coordinator of the Coalition for Sub-Saharan Communities in Morocco, will focus on the results of the association in terms of access to justice and the right to education.
- Mrs. Luciana Ceretti, Migration Health Coordinator at the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Morocco, will highlight the experience of the IOM in the field of migrants' right to health.
- At the end of this event, Dr. Sara Benjelloun, researcher in migration, will present a comprehensive and intersectional analysis.

Since 2013, Morocco has engaged in a new humanitarian, comprehensive and homogeneous migration and asylum policy. About a decade ago, several action programs were implemented to support foreigners’ social and economic integration, update the legislative and institutional framework, and enhance respect for human rights in managing migration.
