Mohammedia – Academics and experts underlined, Wednesday in Mohammedia, the relevance of the autonomy plan presented by Morocco to definitively resolve the artificial conflict around the Moroccan Sahara.

Gathered at the Faculty of Legal, Economic and Social Sciences (FSJES) around a conference on the “Autonomy Plan in the Southern Provinces of the Kingdom: dimensions, implications and perspectives”, the speakers underlined the merits of the Moroccan initiative in light of recent developments, in particular the growing and unprecedented support it has been able to garner.

From the angle of different disciplines of public law and political science (international law, international relations, geopolitics, constitutional law, etc.) around twenty academics provided insight into the different aspects of this plan, which enabled Morocco to consolidate its position on the international scene, and expose the sterile positions of the adversaries of the territorial integrity of the Kingdom.

The participants in this conference thus highlighted the different dimensions, implications and perspectives of the autonomy plan, which constitutes the only serious, realistic and credible basis for the resolution of this conflict.

This meeting was also an opportunity to encourage researchers and students to deepen scientific research on the autonomy plan and to study its different aspects.

The speakers, as such, emphasized the importance of academic advocacy and diplomacy in the defense of the first national cause.

In a statement to MAP, Mohamed Zineddine, head of the public law and political science section at the FSESJ of Mohammedia and general coordinator of this conference, stressed that the importance of this meeting lies in the fact that it highlights emphasis on the conceptual, historical, political and strategic aspects of the autonomy plan, which guarantees the settlement of this artificial conflict, within the framework of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Kingdom.

All the more so, added Mr. Zineddine, as this plan now enjoys the support of more than 100 countries around the world and in a context marked by the growing recognition of the Moroccan nature of the Sahara. A fact illustrated, in particular, by the opening of consulates of several countries in the southern provinces of the Kingdom.

This conference was organized by the laboratories of the Public Law and Political Sciences section of the FSJES of Mohammedia, in partnership with their counterparts at the FSJES of Aïn Chock and the FSJES of Agdal.
