This second edition will be organized in partnership with the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization( ICESCO), the General Delegation for Penitentiary Administration and Reintegration (DGAPR), the Rabita Mohammediya of Oulemas, and the Policy Center for the New South ( PCNS).
