Protest in Marocco: Rif Movement as a case study

Morocco is one of the countries in westernmost Africa, which has always been distinguished thanks to its political and government system. It is one of the oldest monarchies in the world whose reputation goes beyond its borders. Ever since its dependence from the French-Spanish colonizers, it has undergone fundamental changes not only politically, but, more importantly, in terms of the legislation. However, despite the significant enhancement it achieved on all the walks of life, Morocco is still faced, as is reflected in the past years, with tremendous issues among which are protests.

Hence, this presentation will shed the light on the latest massive protest in Morocco called The Rif Movement, that has attracted unprecedented attention internationally. Unlike previous protest, The Rif Movement has posed a real challenge to the Moroccan system not only in its nature, but also in its duration which lasted for a year. Hence, the ultimate objective behind this presentation is trying to cast light on the incentives, processes and the effects on such protest politically as well as socially.

Everyone in the Faculty of Social Sciences is most cordially invited to attend.

There is no need for registration at this time, this is an open event.
