Women claiming justice – Rights to land: The Soulaliyate Movement and the collective lands in Morocco

When: 31 August 2017

Where: UNSW Sydney - Goodsell Building, Rooms 221/223 

When: 5pm (reception), 5.30pm-6.30pm (lecture)

This presentation will focus on the Soulaliyate movement that has recently emerged in Morocco. This social movement is calling for the right of women to receive compensations for land transferred from their tribe to real estate companies; a right which until recently was reserved to men. The name “soulaliyate” came from the “soulala” – the genealogy linking the protesters to their
respective communities.
