The Council of the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME) is organizing this Friday, May 13, 2022, at the Council's seat in Rabat from 10:00 to 13:00, a scientific seminar based on a comprehensive study under the title "Moroccan Migrant Women: Trajectories, itineraries and modes of integration", written by the sociologist and expert in migration, Mrs. Fatima Ait Ben Lmadani. This publication is part of a new collection entitled "Les notes du Conseil".

Based on the main scientific studies on the migration of Moroccan women and the author's work (who published in 2018 the French written book: “la vieillesse illégitime ? Migrantes marocaines ou les chemins sinueux de la reconnaissance), this new publication restores the historical stages of these migrations, highlighting several blind spots and hidden phenomena such as the emigration, as early as the 1960s, of single women.

The synthesis also analyzes the most recent changes in these migrations (family reunification, entry into working life, seasonal migrations, globalization of destinations, etc.), highlighting the discrimination and prejudices suffered by these migrants. After an analysis of the public policies carried out towards migrant women, Ms. Ait Ben Lmadani makes several proposals, including the preservation of the memory of migrant women, the development of academic research and a more resolute action in defense of their rights.

The meeting assembles experts in women's migration from Morocco, France, Belgium and the United Kingdom.

The Council of the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME) and the International University of Rabat (UIR) are holding a joint seminar on Tuesday 8 February 2022 from 9am to 6pm on the topic of "Minors on the move: Dynamics, Public Policies and Rights".

Mr. Abdellah Boussouf, Secretary General of the Council of the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME), has been designated chairman of the jury of the 19th edition of the National Grand Prix of the press, held on Wednesday, December 1, 2021 in Rabat at a ceremony hosted by Mr. Mohamed Mehdi Bensaid, the minister of youth, culture and communication.

The Council of the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME) has donated several books in both Spanish and French to the Islamic Library (AECID) of Madrid.

This selection is part of the CCME's institutional library with over 200 publications on Moroccan migration, its actors and changes.

Several of the council's activities have emphasized the key role of Moroccan academics in Spain in reinforcing cultural ties between our two countries, making it essential to promote partnerships and exchanges with institutions such as the Islamic Library (AECID) in Madrid and CCME.

The CCME is a consultative and prospective institution that is placed under the authority of His Majesty King Mohammed VI and is in charge of the monitoring and the evaluation of the Kingdom's public policies towards its citizens living abroad. Its main mission is to provide advice in order to ensure the protection of Moroccans living abroad, to reinforce their contribution to the economic, social and human development of the country and to strengthen the relations of friendship and cooperation between Morocco and the country of their residence.

The Islamic Library of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (AECID) is a national and international reference in the field of its specialty, namely the Arab world and Islam. It addresses the needs and information requests of its users through the update of its bibliographical resources and with specialized bibliographical information services, home and inter-library loans and the dissemination of its collections. In 2015, the library received the Unesco-Sharjah Prize and the Ibn Arabi-Hikma Prize in 2019.

Rabat - An effective public policy towards Moroccans living abroad (MRE) is a strategic necessity that allows to mobilize skills and strengthen the roles that this category is called to play in the development of the Kingdom, said the Secretary General of the Council of the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME), Mr. Abdellah Boussouf.

As part of the agreement between the CCME and Al Akhawayn University, the Ibn Khaldoun Centre for Immigration and Citizenship Studies organized in Ifrane, from 28 to 30 May 2021, a series of study days gathering experts and researchers on the theme "Migration dynamics in today's world: actual issues and perspectives of research".

On Tuesday, April 6, 2021, Mr. Abdellah Boussouf, Secretary General of the Council of the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME) and Mr. Karim Amor, President of "MeM by CGEM" (Moroccan Entrepreneurs of the World at the General Confederation of Moroccan Businesses), signed a cooperation agreement in Casablanca.

This agreement aims to federate the efforts of both institutions to mobilize Moroccan skills abroad to invest in Morocco and contribute to the economic development of the country.

Addressing the meeting, Boussouf said that patriotism and strong sense of attachment of Moroccans in the world are a strong advantage for Morocco in attracting international talent and exploring global markets, as shown in the Covid-19 pandemic crisis.

" Wealth is created through achieving regional development, which gives an important function to the Moroccan community because of its strong roots in its original regions. The engagement of young Moroccan investors worldwide with projects will be backed and mentored by the CGEM," he explained.

In joining forces with the CGEM, the idea is not only to put Moroccans from abroad at the centre of the national debate on the economic development of the country, but also to support them at the regional level. Different financial mechanisms of support are in place. It is a question of ensuring the systematic involvement of all Moroccans, regardless of where they live.

For his part, Mr. Karim Amor said he was honored to join forces with the CCME "which for us represents, by its experience, a useful complement to our experience". "As a representative of the private sector in Morocco and of Region 13, bringing together the country's dynamic forces abroad, we are offering the MeMs the opportunity to show, by action, their desire to contribute to the Moroccan economy, in particular through business-to-business partnerships and the mentoring of experienced entrepreneurs".

Enjoying a 14-year experience in the migration issue and the debates it raises both in Morocco and in the host countries and within the international bodies, the CCME will regularly provide its expertise to the CGEM, especially on the profile of Moroccan Entrepreneurs and Global High Potentials.

The Diplomatic Foundation hosted, on Tuesday 30 March 2021 in Rabat, a session on dialogue with Mr. Abdellah Boussouf, Secretary General of the Council of the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME), with the attendance of several ambassadors to Morocco and representatives of diplomatic institutions.

A delegation of collective actors and representatives of a Group of Moroccan parties in Europe visited the Council of the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME), on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, where they were received by Mr Abdellah Boussouf, Secretary-General of the Council.
