Round table on "Foreigners' Right to Access Employment in the Tangiers-Tetouan-Al Hoceima Region"

In partnership with the Belgian Development Agency (ENABEL), the Regional Human Rights Commission of the Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima Region (CRDH) organizes a round table on “The Right of Foreigners to Access Employment in the Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima Region”, on Wednesday 30 March 2022, in Tangier, Morocco.

This round table falls within the CRDH mandate on promoting and protecting human rights. It is also the implementation of its annual program of action related to protecting the rights of foreigners, particularly migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.

This meeting aims to enrich the discussion and collective thinking on the economic integration of migrants in the Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima region; given that employment is a fundamental right that guarantees human dignity, as stipulated in the international conventions ratified by Morocco and the Global Compact on Migration (GCM), which was adopted by Morocco on 11 December 2018 in Marrakech.

This symposium also intends to identify the reality of migrant employment in the region, determine the obstacles limiting their access to work, share the best practices related to facilitating their economic integration, and propose possible and realistic solutions to ensure their right to safe work.

Representatives of government institutions, territorial groups, private sector, NGOs, relevant United Nations agencies, professors, researchers and media professionals will take part in this event.

The National Human Rights Council (CNDH) published its report in 2013 entitled: "Foreigners and Human Rights in Morocco: For a New Policy in the Field of Human Rights and Migration."
