Maghreb Roundtable: Human Rights Perspectives in Morocco

April 7, 2014 • 12:30 – 2:00 pm EDT

Morocco is trying to build democracy step-by-step, though it faces many challenges ahead, according to Driss El Yazami. Mr. El Yazami is the president of Morocco’s National Human Rights Council (CNDH). The human rights council was established in mid-2011, and it evolved from the Advisory Council on Human Rights (CCDH) established in the early 1990s. El Yazami spoke at a Maghreb Roundtable entitled “Human Rights Perspectives in Morocco” on April 7, 2014.
