A new horizon for consolidating citizenship values ​​and promoting human rights culture in school and university spaces

The National Human Rights Council (CNDH) and the Ministry of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research signed, on Thursday 4 February 2021, a framework agreement for cooperation and partnership, seeking to encourage initiatives to promote human rights thinking in school and university spaces.

This agreement was signed by Mrs. Amina Bouayach, CNDH Chairperson, and Mr. Said Amzazi, Minister of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research.

Mr. Driss Ouaouicha, Minister Delegate in charge of Higher Education and Scientific Research, general secretaries of the three departments at the ministry and the President of Mohammed V University in Rabat also took part in this event.

This agreement aims to share the expertise and experience of each party to consolidate citizenship values and encourage reflexions and initiatives to promote human rights culture within the school and university spaces, as well as to spread tolerance/peaceful debate cultures through curricula and training processes, etc.

In her statement, Mrs. Bouayach affirmed that the CNDH seeks that this agreement promotes human rights culture through the educational system in its pedagogical and cultural dimensions to be considered a norm for public action. The CNDH intends to provide relevant normative materials necessary for academic research to enhance scientific human rights researches.

Considering new areas for joint action, the CNDH Chairperson announced that the human rights edifice and knowledge assests will be strengthened by publishing a periodic magazine with academic specifications, as well as creating educational human rights clubs within universities, institutes, schools and university halls...

For his part, Mr. Amzazi said that this agreement is an explicit embodiment of a participatory approach aiming at strengthening human rights culture and reinforcing the sense of belonging to the country, citizenship, tolerance and decent living values for the learner.

Mr. Ouaouicha, for his part, highlighted the importance of this promising partnership with the CNDH in consolidating human rights principles and the concept of rights and duties among the young generation.

This framework agreement will strengthen cooperation among the CNDH’s regional commissions, regional academies of education and training (AREFs) and universities in the fields of education/scientific research and its relationship to the promotion of human rights culture and social mediation. It will also contribute to supervise the establishment of training, scientific university chairs, educational human rights clubs, seminars and think tanks, etc.
