    Moroccan Culture beyond borders by Mr Abdellah Boussouf

    The presence and engagement of the Council of the Moroccan community living abroad (CCME) at the international Casablanca Book fair (SIEL) has become a must.

    During the past editions of this cultural event, the Council’s engagement has particularly focused on the thought process related to the realities of Moroccan immigration in western society. has been by the depth of the cerebrations on the Moroccan migration in western society.

    We have tried to break down and analyse the challenges of living together in a plural and multicultural society and how this constitutes an effective asset through constructive discussions.

    We tried to evaluate the challenges driven by identity-related and spiritual tensions in the countries of residence. We have, at the same time, invited members of the civil society and institutions to work together in an attempt to identify opportunities suggestions and sometimes even solutions.
    The study of aspects related to Moroccan migration showed that the plural Moroccan identity is a main component of the integration of Moroccan communities in host countries.

    The 25th edition of the international book fair dedicated to the Moroccan culture beyond borders, revisits its variety. And the CCME will try to increase its knowledge of the vitality and the challenges the Moroccan culture is facing. We will try to provide tools to Moroccans around the world that might contribute to the development of host societies while allowing Moroccan culture to take advantage of globalization.
    The planning and programming of the CCME are but a reflection of the diversity and creativeness Moroccans living abroad.
    We are looking forward to welcoming the public to our stand.

COP22 : Interview with Mr. Abdellah Boussouf

Many questions come to mind regarding the correlation between climate change, migration and the Moroccan community abroad. In light of the waves of migration, what could be the link between COP22 and migratory matters? M. Boussouf : As the organizer of the COP22, Morocco claims to be at the same level as other countries, which have the capability to host large-scale events and naturally contribute to resolving international issues. The mission of our nation during this COP will mainly be of executive nature as this conference was preceded by the COP21 during which all parties committed to adhere a process designed to protect the environment and to mitigate climate change impacts. Consequently, the Kingdom’s mission during this summit is to define the execution mechanisms to take up the climate challenge. His Majesty wants to position this event as an African summit. Indeed, Africa is the continent most impacted by global warming and these effects will determine its future.

    There was a time when the world was truly vast and people were very much apart. A time when everyone relied on scarce forms of obtaining news, a time when one wrote a letter to a loved one, and waited days if not weeks to have news back.

    Today’s technology, has shrunk the world into a minute entity; With the abundance of news providers, social media and fast and instant messaging, we have come to learn about events as they occur, good, bad or ugly.

    Technology has also meant opening a free for all channel to those whose intentions are not always conducive to the greater good.
