Organisation Marocaine des Droits Humains
The Moroccan Organisation for Human Rights (OMDH) aims to diffuse and deepen the awareness of individual and collective human rights in socio-economic, cultural, civil and political matters.
Working with other Moroccan, Arabic, African and international organisations, it organises conferences, debates, research, investigations and exhibitions as well as a video competition on human rights. The OMDH creates specialised documentation, publishes reports and helps victims of human rights’ violations.
The OMDH is mainly composed of lawyers, academics, journalists, doctors, professionals and civil servants. It has branches in 12 major Moroccan cities and continues its expansion across other cities of the kingdom. The organisation supports the project for an inter-Arab coalition against the death penalty. Its president, Amina
Bouayach, chaired a discussion on this subject during the 3rd World Congress against the death penalty in Paris in February 2007.
