WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT

Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Colleagues,

The Moroccan Women Judges Union is pleased to inform you that a Regional Conference of African Women Judges will be held, on the occasion of the National Day of Moroccan Women, from October 10th to 12th, 2019 in Fez at Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah Conference Center, under the aegis of the High Council of Judicial Authority

 This first Regional Conference will carry ”messages” and will be based on memorable moments such as the inaugural session or the meetings in the margins of the plenary ones, workshops, signing of conventions and partnerships…

The main goal is to carry the voice of His Majesty King Mohammed VI of “live together”, tolerance, and peace in the world.

This will aim to mobilize the committed actors of our country to support and sustain this conference, as well as to provide a strong platform for the dynamics of our diplomacy throughout the world.

Morocco, a land of hospitality, will thus reinforce its position as a country that has achieved an important progress in terms of fighting against all forms of discrimination, corruption, and in the defense of human rights…

This conference will offer an opportunity for women judges to discuss the different challenges in the institutions they represent.

In order to find sustainable solutions, they will gather around a unifying theme:

« The social and professional guarantees of women judges:

What are the approaches? »

It seems very crucial to determine a comprehensive and integrated approach with the participation of all the concerned parties as well as the civil society actors from all over the continent.

The main goals of this 1st edition are to promote the rights of women judges in Africa and to stop discriminatory laws in the profession.

Also, to work on progressing gender sensitive courts and fighting corruption, together with guaranteeing the social rights of women judges

This exceptional meeting will as well allow the women judges to develop their network and take part in basic justice education programs.

The choice of Morocco to organize this first conference will consolidate the Kingdom position as a country deeply concerned with human rights, equity and justice.

On this occasion, our country will receive imminent personalities from many countries. We already wish a good stay in Morocco to all our participants, hopping they will be as numerous as possible for this 1st edition.

FEZ: THE SPIRITUAL AND CULTURAL CAPITAL
HOST CITY OF THE 1ST CONFERENCE OF AFRICAN WOMEN JUDGES

Located in northern Morocco at 175 km east of Rabat, Fez is the third biggest city of Morocco.

With Meknes, Marrakesh, and Rabat, Fez is one of the four “imperial cities” which has the largest Medina in the world. This typical medina has remained unchanged since the 12th century and is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

With 1 million visitors a year, tourism is on the rise, thanks to cultural events like the annual Festival of Sacred Music of the world. The Medina, main attraction of Fez, was founded in 789, at the same place of the actual Andalusia area. For many centuries, the city was a political, intellectual and spiritual capital of Morocco and lived its golden age between the 13th and 14th centuries.

From Idrissides to Alaouites, many civilizations have made their marks on the history and the architecture of the city. Today, many mosques, madrassas and fountains are still present all over the city of Fez, along with gardens, walls and ramparts, fortified gates, mausoleums, palaces and Riads.

Among the city gardens, we retain the Gardens of Batha Palace and the one of Riad Moqri. Many monuments were restored, including the Madrassa El-Attarin, the Madrassa Bou-Inania (the biggest madrassa of the Marinids dating from the 14th century) and the Library of the Quaraouiyine Mosque which contains some very rare manuscripts. La Magana, a unique hydraulic clock in the world, was lately restored.

Today Fez offers many tourist attractions, starting with the picturesque old district of the medina and its great Mosque Quaraouiyine, which dates from the 9th century, or the four majestic Doors of the City with typical Moroccan mosaics. The South-Borj, one of the two bastions built on the order of the Sultan Ahmed al-Mansour, offers a beautiful panorama of the city. The North-Borj, which terrace also offers a wonderful view, was converted into a Museum of Weapons (knives, firearms and guns). The ruins of the Marinids Tombs offer a panorama of the entire city.

In the heart of the medina that still maintains its medieval structures; the district of Fez El Bali contains some of the most beautiful buildings in Morocco, such as the Andalusians Mosque and the Quaraouiyine Mosque. The Square En-Nejjarine,

which is the center of the medina, presents one of the most beautiful fountains of the Medina and the El Fondouk En-Nejjarine, converted into a Wood Museum, near the Souk of the Carpenters. One of the main arteries of Souk, Talaa Kebira, is amazing with its countless colorful shops.
