Spatial Justice and Social Justice

Takamul Center for Studies and Research organized a national cross-knowledge symposium on: Spatial Justice and Social Justice, 19-20 November 2021, in Marrakesh.

We aim from this symposium to cover the issue of spatial justice and social justice from different disciplines, given that the current context has begun to impose dealing with social justice with a spatial approach and not on a national level because each field has different needs.

Many objectives was targeted from this symposium, for example:

  • Reaseing awareness and crate a debate on the possible ways to achieve spatial and social justice;
  • Assessing the status of domain justice and the extent of its compliance with the standards of governance;
  • Directing decision-makers towards the situation of spatial and social justice in Morocco.

The activity addressed to young researchers and professors from different disciplines in order to achieve integration between disciplines and approaches, never the less the presence of other actors, for example: Malika Zakhnini, Member of The Moroccan Parliament.
