As part of the European Union support programme for the Government Programme for Equality, the Higher Magistracy Institute is organising a training course on gender equality from 8th to 20th October 2018 in Rabat. Supported by the EU, this will be attended by 40 teacher trainers, comprising magistrates and court secretaries.

Given that sexist stereotypes are one of the most widespread and recurrent obstacles facing women when accessing the judicial system, the Higher Magistracy Institute has decided to act by contributing to the emergence of new professional practices that will guarantee effective, equal and fair access to the justice system for women and for men.

The training courses held over twelve days will aim to help legal professionals to adopt professional practices that incorporate human rights, equality and non-discrimination as well as a gender-based approach in accordance with Morocco’s commitments.
