President of Morocco’s National Council on Human Rights (CNDH), Driss El Yazami, participated Wednesday in a high-level debate on human rights education, held in Geneva as part of the 33rd session of the Human rights Council.
The discussions, which took place during this meeting organized on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the UN Declaration on Human Rights Education and Training, focused on the best practices and challenges in this area .
Speaking as a panellist, El Yazami stressed the importance of raising youth awareness about human rights issues, especially as they represent an important part of Moroccan society- more than 8 million people.
He said in this regard that a manual was distributed in partnership with the UNESCO and the National Council on Human Rights to promote the human rights culture, especially among the youth.
For him, one of the challenges in this area relates to how to deal with migration flows. “The exploitation of the issue of migration is hazardous and human rights education must take into account this reality,” he noted.
