The reform of the Moroccan justice system is facing considerable institutional, legal, structural, judicial and human challenges. With its new Constitution, the country has committed to standardizing dispositions of national legislation with international human rights conventions. However, the latest reform projects have been considered regressive by civil society.

ASF’s strategy in Morocco

ASF’s mission is to contribute to a plural, democratic, egalitarian Morocco, respectful of human rights and based on the principles of social justice and sustainable development. In order to achieve this goal, ASF is reinforcing vulnerable citizens’ power to act by enabling them to claim and assert their rights, relying on the interdisciplinarity of actors to provide comprehensive support.

The project “Improving access to justice and human rights protection for the most vulnerable groups”

The aim of the project is to help women who have been victims of violence, prisoners and migrants claim and assert their rights.
