Morocco re-elected to the UN International Law Commission for the period 2023-2027

The Kingdom of Morocco was re-elected, in the person of Professor Hassan Ouazzani Chahdi, to the International Law Commission for the period 2023-2027, during the election held on November 12, 2021 in New York on the occasion of the work of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

The elections were particularly intense, with twelve candidates for nine seats allocated to African states, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates  in a statement, noting that thanks to the mobilization for two years of the entire Moroccan diplomatic apparatus for the success of this candidacy, it has received 151 votes, ensuring its election in the first round.

This new success testifies to the high credibility enjoyed by the Kingdom’s multilateral diplomacy, thanks to the High Vision of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, whose central pillar is the attachment to international law, and his action for the codification and progressive development of international law.

It is also a confirmation of the relevance of the ambitious strategy that the Kingdom implements, on High Royal Instructions, to strengthen its presence in international organizations, the statement said.

The International Law Commission, created in 1947, has the mandate to promote the progressive development of international law and its codification. It brings together thirty-four of the world’s leading legal scholars in the field of international law, on the basis of equitable geographical distribution.

Mr Hassan Ouazzani Chahdi is currently an Honorary University Professor and has a long and distinguished career in higher education as a professor of public international law and administrative law. He is the author of dozens of books and articles on legal and administrative issues as well as on specific problems of international law and human rights. Since 2016, Mr Ouazzani Chahdi has been a member of the International Law Commission.
