Study day: Exploring Child Exploitation through Begging and Ensuring Protection

The National Human Rights Council (CNDH) /National Child Redress Mechanism is organizing a study day entitled “Phenomenon of Child Exploitation through Begging: What Protection?” on Friday 7 June 2024, at 9 am at the CNDH headquarters in Rabat, Morocco.

The study day aims to shed light on this issue and its repercussions on child rights and to formulate recommendations and proposals that would contribute to reducing the phenomenon and its causes so that children can enjoy all their rights stipulated in international agreements, particularly the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).

Participants will address child begging issue through approaches focusing mainly on understanding this phenomenon in terms of causes, repercussions, and methods of exploiting children. They will also examine the effective implementation of an integrated public policy for child protection and the harmonization of the national protective legislative system with the international normative framework. Besides, stakeholders will explore the convergence in terms of approach/intervention and the connection to human trafficking and access to rehabilitation programs for children.

Representatives of the Ministry of Solidarity, Social Inclusion and Family, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Justice, Presidency of the Public Prosecution, and Economic, Social and Environmental Council (CESE), will participate in this study day. Academic experts and associations working in the field of child protection will also take part in this event.
