Expressions of Right, CNDH theme at the 27th Chapter of the International Editing and Book fair 2022

From 3 to 12 June 2022, visitors to the International Editing and Book Fair, known in French as Salon International de l’Edition et du Livre (SIEL), in its 27th Chapter at the Souissi Space in Rabat, Morocco, will have an appointment with the National Human Rights Institution to shed light on the theme Expressions of Human Rights.

The National Human Rights Council (CNDH) pavilion will cover 200 m². It will be an open and inclusive space. Its activities will focus on updates and issues the CNDH pleads through daily sections such as Debates and Interviews, Book Talk, CNDH Guest, Artistic Expressions, plus a morning section on children's expressions of their rights.

Throughout the SIEL days, we will not seek to delve into questions introducing and sharing elements of diagnosis only. But we will try, within this space, to stir ready-made points of view, raise new questions and get into their ramifications in light of the societal developments... Our goal is to renew our advocacy and lay the foundations of new practices to serve the fight for equality and for human rights respect.

Mrs. Amina Bouayach, CNDH Chairperson

Over ten days, the CNDH pavilion will host more than 40 events. They will be moderated by Moroccan and foreign experts and actors (about 100 participants), besides the contributions of national and international institutional and civil partners.

Themes such as the right to life, the right to health, the right to culture, the right to development, collective memory and history, migration, artificial intelligence, digital citizenship, inclusive cities, Moroccan heritage, and African cultures... will be addressed at the CNDH pavilion at SIEL.

The Expressions of Right  pavilion will also host open sessions to present recent publications and critical readings on current human rights issues such as women’s rights, childhood, health system, migrants’ rights, schooling of children with disabilities, security policies, abolition of the death penalty, Amazigh and Saharan heritage, African heritage, memory…

In addition to presenting artistic sections (exhibitions, paintings, poetry, theater...) advocating for the abolition of the death penalty, combating violence against women and girls, the rights of foreigners and migrants, childhood, Hassani heritage, memory, the image of Africa..., the CNDH pavilion will, during SIEL days, give the floor for children from different parts of the Kingdom to express their concerns and aspirations, through words, art and culture.
