The Human Rights Council (HRC) elected, on September 26th 2014, in Geneva, Professor Mohamed Bennani, as one of the 18 experts of the Human Rights Advisory Committee.
Human rights council advisory committee is a subsidiary body of the HRC and represents its Think Tank, established to replace the former Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights.
It should be recalled that Morocco was the initiator, in 2007, of the United Nations Declaration on training and education, in the field of Human Rights, about which the Human rights council advisory committee presented a study to the Human Rights Council, before its adoption, in 2011, by the Human Rights Council and the UN General Assembly..
Similarly, Morocco presented, in June 2012, a Declaration to the Human Rights Council on the impact of corruption on the enjoyment of human rights, about which the Human Rights Council Advisory Committee was mandated to prepare a study.
The election of Professor Mohamed Bennani reaffirms, therefore, the recognition by the international community of Morocco’s substantial contribution to the work of the HRC, in terms of the codification and the progressive development of Human Rights International Law.
