His Royal Highness Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan chaired, on Wednesday, the inauguration session of the new members of the Academy of the Kingdom of Morocco, on the occasion of the opening of the first session of this prestigious institution under its new configuration. The session was marked by a Message from His Majesty King Mohammed VI to the members of the Academy of the Kingdom of Morocco, read out by the Academy’s permanent secretary, Abdeljalil Lahjomri. In this message, the Sovereign said that the Academy of the kingdom of Morocco has become a beacon of cross-continental thought and research as well as a platform for honing intellectual, academic and scientific skills in all areas of the humanities and social sciences. “The Academy has become a beacon of cross-continental thought and research as well as a platform for honing intellectual, academic and scientific skills in all areas of the humanities and social sciences. It has contributed to developing and enriching research while highlighting the historical and cultural depth that the Kingdom of Morocco has acquired over the centuries,” emphasized His Majesty the King. To enable the Academy to discharge its lofty mission in the best possible way, said His Majesty the king, “I have sought, since 2015, to reactivate it and revisit its structure”. The aim was to bring it in line with the goals and stipulations of the Kingdom’s Constitution, which seeks to preserve our national identity, with its Arab-Islamic, Berber and Sahrawi-Hassani components, as well as its African, Andalusian, Hebrew and Mediterranean ones, added the Sovereign. On this occasion, Mohamed Sghir Janjar, in an address on behalf of the resident members, emphasized the high regard in which His Majesty the King holds this prestigious institution, and the Sovereign’s concern to promote it so that it fulfills its mission and achieves the cognitive and civilizational objectives for which it was created. Referring to the theme of this session, “The family and the crisis of values”, Janjar stressed that the challenge of “the crisis of values” is no longer limited to developed industrialized societies, but also concerns other societies on the southern shores of the Mediterranean, which are undergoing profound changes, linked in particular to demographic transition, the rapid and intense exodus of people from the countryside to the cities, and the generalization of education. In an address on behalf of the Academy’s associate members, Souleymane Bachir Diagne (Senegal) emphasized the importance of the main theme chosen for this session, noting that “this subject lies at the heart of the many questions posed by the times we live in, in all countries, under all latitudes”. In the reflections that will be carried out on this subject, particular emphasis will be placed on the family for the responsibility and the eminent role that fall to it, and from which it cannot shirk, he said, adding that rather than simply accuse it of resigning and therefore of being a factor in the crisis of values, we will examine above all the way in which it itself suffers the destructive impact of the economic and social crisis widespread everywhere due to neoliberal globalization which maintains the inequalities within and between Nations. HRH Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan then posed for a souvenir photo with members of the Academy of the Kingdom of Morocco. On his arrival at the headquarters of the Academy of the Kingdom of Morocco, HRH Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan was greeted by Abdeljalil Lahjomri. After reviewing a Royal Guard detachment that made the honors, HRH Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan was greeted by the Wali of the Rabat-Salé-Kénitra region, Mohamed Yacoubi, president of the regional Council, Rachid El Abdi, the Academy’s executive director, Bachir Tamer, the Academy’s deputy permanent secretary, Mohamed Kettani, as well as by Rahma Bourqia, chairwoman of sessions at the Academy, and Mustapha Zebakh, the Academy’s Rapporteur.
