Kingdom of Morocco National Human Rights Council (CNDH)

The creation of the National Human Rights Council (CNDH) strengthens the commitment of the Kingdom of Morocco to protect its citizens’ rights and freedoms. It confirms Morocco’s attachment to respect its international commitments in the protection and promotion of human rights.

“Legitimate child” of the former Advisory Council on Human Rights (CCDH) which was created on the eve of the political changeover in 1990, the National Human Rights Council is created to reinforce and consolidate the rule of law and the institution-based State. It substituted the former Advisory Council, which was one of the key institutions in the democratic transition in Morocco, mainly in the settlement of the past gross human rights violations after its first reform in 2002.
