Moroccan judges participate in roundtable on new Family Code

Casablanca, 20 September 2005 -- HREA conducted a national roundtable for judges on the Moudawana, the new Family Code of Morocco. Twenty five family judges participated in the roundtable in Rabat on 14-16 September. The event, executed in collaboration with the Ministry of Justice and the Institut de Magistrats, involved presentations and interactive discussions among the judges who are intimately involved in the implementation of the Moudawana.

Twenty family judges and five prosecutors attended the roundtable. Each day focused on a core theme related to the Moudawana, the revised Family Code, which is based on international standards regarding non-discrimination and women's human rights. These themes were: the act of marriage (legal conditions for marriage); married life (the rights and duties of spouses); mediation (alternative dispute resolution); and the dissolution of marriage (divorce). Four regional trainings will take place in the upcoming months.
