The International Network of Liberal Women- Chapter Morocco is a Network based on the very principles of liberalism; (Freedom, justice, equal citizenship and individual representation of the human being). Its approach reconciles essentially the individual with his environment in order to build a social peace, in accordance with the universally recognized principles in the field of human rights and the conventions signed and ratified by the Kingdom of Morocco.
Liberalism is the only doctrine and moral philosophy for the International Network of Liberal Women-Morocco, which affirms and guarantees individual rights without selection, discrimination or classification.
It is in this sense that this Network of Moroccan Women has organized a training workshop on Liberalism and Citizenship, a project that is part of a series of trainings that will allow all Network stakeholders and members to benefit from a wealth of experience in knowing, mastering and disseminating these concepts that we are used to using but whose meaning often escapes.
Agenda: A day of training on the values of liberalism and citizenship
This training workshop was organized by INLW Morocco to consolidate liberal values internally and unify the identity and vision of the network in partnership with the German Friedrich Naumann Foundation STIFTUNG, under the theme of liberal and citizen values, led by Professor Abdelali Mestour, President of the Citizenship Forum.
The enthusiasm of the participants for these themes made the session quickly take the turn of a Think Tank at the service of reflection and collective productivity.
In the first place were defined the principles of liberalism in big letters which were then integrated into the identity and the specific values of the INLWMaroc network; and finally, an overall assessment of the session’s progress, with a conclusion from Madam Chairperson of the Network, Loubna Amhair and a note from Chaimae Bourjij, the program officer of the FNF FOUNDATION.
This training had for main objectives:
• definition of the liberal values and principles,
• The history of the emergence of liberal thought and its foundations,
• Definition of the social roles that Moroccan liberal women can play;
• Definition of the legal and social status of a Citizen;
• Provide women members of the INLWM Network with a working platform to unify their vision and messages;
• Promote the best methods for more effective actions;
• Create an identification to define common goals;
• Better understand the dynamics of the group to reinforce the cohesion and reinforcement of the Network.
