Follow-up the implementation of the IER recommendations: CNDH announces the establishment of a Unit for the preservation of memory and the promotion of Moroccan history

The National Human Rights Council (CNDH) will organize a ceremony on the occasion of the establishment of the "Unit for the preservation of memory and the promotion of Moroccan history and its various tributaries", on Tuesday 25 May 2021 at the headquarters of the Academy of the Kingdom in Rabat, Morocco at 5 p.m.

The establishment of the "Unit for the preservation of memory and the promotion of Moroccan history and its various tributaries" is in line with the CNDH integrated vision, adopted in 2019, and the constitutional provisions. It is part of the implementation of the Equity and Reconciliation Commission (IER) actions related to studying the historical context and drawing its political and human rights significance.

It is also part of the implementation of the actions of the Follow-up Committee for the implementation of the IER recommendations related to history and the preservation of memory.

Through the establishment of this Unit, the CNDH aims to promote Moroccan human rights history and its various tributaries. It also intends to strengthen its implementation in curricula and school programs, with a view to implement a clear and integrated strategy that reflects the human rights development process in Morocco.

Besides, this Unit aims at contributing to the democratic construction and anchoring human rights in society and the State.

Thus, the Unit is a support mechanism for studying models and areas of memory preservation, considering the contemporary history and elaborating recommendations to the relevant institutions.

The CNDH integrated vision, adopted in 2019, emphasizes the organization of internal archives, updating agreements concluded with the various partners, accelerating the transformation of old detention centers into spaces of memory.

The CNDH vision also includes recommendations on laws relating to museums and the National Museums Foundation, as well as considering the promotion of history and the preservation of memory as part of the CNDH’s vision relating to the new development model.

The Memory Preservation Unit will be a space for objective reflection and research on issues related to contemporary history and its extent. On the one hand, the extent could challenge the consolidation of the rule of law, directly or indirectly and on the other hand, it could anchor democratic practices and the effectiveness of human rights in Morocco.

Through this Unit, the CNDH will also ensure taking initiatives related to memory preservation. It could start with interacting, researching and debating on different types of personal blogging on events related to previous violations. It could also include socio-economic rehabilitation of memory preservation centers, then, establishing museums and well processing archives, etc.
