Description

The presentation introduces the phenomenon of new social movements (NSM) within the context of Moroccan politics, focusing on three cases: women, the amazighs (Berbers), and victims of state abuse. The major questions addressed concern the impact of the integration of the NSM in the political process on the Moroccan monarchy and on the prospects for democratization. While the focus of the analysis is on Morocco, the issues raised have a broader relevance to the Islamic world.
