Format of the Forum

The Marrakesh Forum will be composed of two important moments:

  • An inaugural conference, during which prominent international figures will express their views on major human rights issues in the world today;
  • A closing conference, that will draw the main conclusions and recommendations of the Forum. It brings together representatives of governments, international human rights organizations, national human rights institutions, national and international NGOs and various world figures.

Between these two major events, the Marrakesh WHRF will host more than thirty thematic forums, more than ten special events and around fifty diverse events: conferences, dialogues for rights, internal activities, workshops, self-organized workshops and a cultural program.

The Forum expects to host 5,000 people from five continents.
