Building good links for tomorrow

Friday, April 13, 2012

A delegation from two Moroccan youth organisations recently visited the UK on a study mission and Heeley MP Meg Munn arranged to meet them along with a couple of her colleagues.  The young people were in London to meet MPs and representatives of UK political parties to discuss promoting better governance, improving dialogue with citizens and ensuring better representation of voter interests.

 

Meg outlined to the group the role of opposition ministers and backbench MPs compared with the role of government. She also described the various ways that cross-party MPs work together. The group asked questions about political parties in the UK, working with organisations outside of Parliament and our developed democratic processes.

 

The two Moroccan youth organisations are the Youth for Youth Association and Moroccan Youth Forum, working together on a study mission arranged by the National Democratic Institute (NDI). Both organisations are currently involved in launching parliamentary and government monitoring initiatives in Morocco.

 

The Youth for Youth Association, founded in 2005, is an independent non-governmental organisation created by a group of young students, graduates and civil servants. Open to all young Moroccans aged 18 35, the network’s activities focus on local development for youth social integration. The Moroccan Youth Forum was founded in 2007 by a group of young volunteers who felt that the involvement of young people in developing countries remains a necessity enhancing the values of citizenship and democracy, and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. 

 

Meg commented:

 

“It’s important for members of the UK Parliament to build up good relationships with organisations working in other countries such as Youth for Youth and the Moroccan Youth Forum. Along with the other MPs who met the group, I hope the information and experience about our democratic political system will help towards building a better system in Morocco.”
