In partnership with the Collective for the Promotion of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in Morocco, the National Human Rights Council (CNDH) will organize, on Tuesday 6 July 2021, an International online symposium on: Political participation of persons with disabilities: Current situation and international experiences.

This event aims at contributing to identify standards and indicators to measure the implementation of the right to political participation of persons with disabilities. Besides, it intends to analyze issues related to framework laws on elections, international standards of the rights of persons with disabilities and relevant actors and stakeholders’ roles.

National and international experts from the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions (GANHRI), International Disability Alliance (IDA), The Arab Organization of Persons with Disabilities (AOPD) and National Democratic Institute (NDI) will participate in this symposium.

The program of this event will focus on the political participation of persons with disabilities in line with the national and international normative frameworks, Comparative experiences in the field of supporting inclusion and the effectiveness of the right to political participation by persons with disabilities.       

Stakeholders will interact on the Moroccan election observation experiences conducted by the CNDH as a national institution mandated to promote and protect human rights and the experience of the IDA in 2015 and 2016.

This symposium will result in providing scientific papers to contribute to elaborate a reference document for the observation and measuring the effective implementation of the right to political and public participation during the election process; starting from the election campaign, through voting and ending in adopting the governmental program of the elected government.

Mrs. Amina Bouayach, CNDH Chairperson, Mr. Danlami Basharu, Member of CRPD and Mr. Mohamed Elkhadri, President of the Collective for the Promotion of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in Morocco will take part in the opening session of this event.
