Tanger-Tetouan-Al Hoceima Region: Round Table entitled “Children in difficult conditions, what protection?”

The CNDH Regional Commission in Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima (CRDH) will organize a round table entitled “Children in difficult conditions, what protection?” on Friday 24 June 2022 at 4 pm in Tanger, Morocco.

It is part of the CRDH mandate related to protecting and promoting human rights and the implementation of the annual action plan related to children.

This round table aims to open public discussion and collective thinking about the fundamental issues affecting children in difficult situations (children in street situations, children with disabilities, children in conflict with the law, children placed in social welfare institutions, children migrating in irregular situations and unaccompanied, children victims of early marriage and school dropout, etc.).

It also intends to address the accountability of public policies and their effectiveness in ensuring the protection of the child, as stipulated in the Constitution and the Convention on the Rights of the Child and tackle their consistency with the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

This round table will be an opportunity to shed light on the challenges faced to enable all children to enjoy their economic, social and cultural rights, such as education, health, adequate housing, and others.

Stakeholders will also share insights on possible solutions to reduce obstacles (such as school dropout, sexual exploitation, violence and exploitation for begging, hard and early work...) aiming to provide for effective protection of the child to raise him/her as an active, productive citizen and a contributor to comprehensive and sustainable development.

Several actors representing the judiciary, government, professors, civil society associations, media professionals, etc. will discuss these issues from human rights, legal and social perspectives.

Within the framework of its mandate, the CRDH receives complaints related to human rights violations, including violations of children's rights. It spontaneously handles cases of violations communicated in the region.
