12-01-2016

The new constitution, adopted during the reign of Mohamed VI, covers almost all human rights set out in the Universal Human Rights Declaration. Public space for debate over human rights issues has opened up significantly in recent years. A number of concerns, however, prevail, as implementation and enforcement of the new constitutional provisions remain incomplete.
