The best interests of the child seen by Mediators and Ombudsmen – training workshop

23/04/2024 - 24/04/2024

Rabat, Morocco - The Venice Commission is organising, in co-operation with the Association of Ombudsmen and Mediators of the Francophonie (AOMF) and the Ombudsman of Morocco, a training workshop which will focus on the best interests of the child. This training will be held between 23 and 24 April in Rabat, Morocco and will bring together the collaborators of Mediators and Ombudsmen of the AOMF network.

Participants will discuss the issues and best practices of the institutions of Ombudsmen and Mediators concerning the best interests of the child with regard to legal procedures, institutional care and the inclusion of the child in a situation of disability.

The main mission of the Association of Ombudsmen and Mediators of the Francophonie (AOMF) is to promote the role of the Ombudsman and the Mediator in the Francophonie and to encourage the development and consolidation of independent mediation institutions in the Francophone environment. Through the holding of annual training courses, the Venice Commission has developed since 2013 close co-operation with the AOMF network. This is the largest regional network of Mediators and is currently chaired by the Mediator of the Kingdom of Morocco.

This training is organised within the framework of the joint Council of Europe - European Union programme “Protecting human rights, the rule of law and democracy through shared standards in the southern Mediterranean” (South Programme V) co-financed by the two organisations and implemented by the Council of Europe.
