Forum on Women's Access to Justice in the Maghreb: Case Study of Morocco

The National Human Rights Council (CNDH), Mohammed V University in Rabat, the State of Law Programme Middle East and North Africa of the Konrad Adenauer-Stiftung and the International Law Group (ARPA) are organizing a forum on "Women's Access to Justice in the Maghreb: A Case Study of Morocco", from 20 to 22 June 2022, at the Mohammed V University in Rabat, Morocco.

The forum will develop relations between women leaders in North Africa (Mauritania, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Morocco) working in justice, civil society, and politics. It intends to develop action plans to enhance women's access to justice in the Maghreb, through a collaborative approach related to the legal empowerment.

This forum will shed light on Morocco’s actions related to justice, particularly, since Morocco celebrates the 11th anniversary of the Constitution this year.

The forum will also be an opportunity to launch a network of practitioners in the field of access to justice for Maghreb women to promote exchanging experiences and follow-up on the proposed recommendations.

Access to justice in the Maghreb countries is a growing concern. It has been further exacerbated during the health crisis related to Covid-19, which reduced women’s freedom of movement and increased the gap in accessing justice due to the digitization of their system and delays in providing legal aid and scheduling cases in the courts. The pandemic also has resulted in increasing violence against women, and obstacles that still hinder their access to justice.
