    ICESCO Takes Part in Meeting on Morocco’s National Action Plan on Democracy and Human Rights

    16 March 2022

    The Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) took part in the meeting of the Steering Committee in charge of implementing Morocco’s National Action Plan on Democracy and Human Rights. The in-person meeting, which took place at the headquarters of the Inter-ministerial Delegation for Human Rights (DIDH) in the Kingdom of Morocco, aimed at reviewing the major thrusts of the action plan, the progress hitherto achieved in its implementation and its implementation scheme for 2022 and was attended by representatives from various ministries and international organizations.

    Mr. Mohamed Hadi Shili, Director of ICESCO’s Legal Affairs and International Standards Department, expressed the Organization’s readiness to support the thrusts of the action plan, which fall within ICESCO’s areas of competence and are in line with the outputs of the final report of the International Symposium on “Human Rights and the Digital Challenge” held in March 2021. He noted that the final report highlighted potential avenues of cooperation between ICESCO and DIDH, particularly in the protection of digital privacy and the elimination of digital violence and online hate speech, in addition to projects geared towards encouraging scientific research and innovation in Moroccan universities.

    In the same context, a meeting was held between ICESCO and DIDH, during which the two parties agreed on implementing several joint activities. These activities are based on the Moroccan government’s priorities that are outlined in the National Action Plan on Democracy and Human Rights and ICESCO’s Action Plan for 2022-2023 that was adopted by the 14th Session of the Organization’s General Conference, which was held in the Arab Republic of Egypt last December.
