Morocco: ICJ lists series of concerns over economic, social and cultural rights

Ahead of the upcoming review of the 4th periodic report of Morocco on its implementation of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the ICJ has submitted an information to the UN Committee in charge of monitoring the Covenant.

The ICJ submission to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights draws the Committee’s attention to major concerns over the protection of rights in the country, including the right to just and favourable conditions, the right to an adequate standard of living or the right to health.

The ICJ submission aims at contributing to the development of a list of issues that the Committee will address to the State of Morocco to obtain further information on specific aspects dealt with in the State report.

The Committee will examine Morocco’s fourth periodic report and the State’s response to its list of issues before issuing recommendations at the 56th session in September 2015.
