Research Report: Morocco Raises its Voice

Screen Shot 2015-01-05 at 5.01.07 PMBefore I was interested in digital activism I was interested in civil society, particularly the grassroots hardscrabble kind.  This report, written under the auspices of a Fulbright grant, analyzes the young field of political non-profits made possible through liberalization under Morocco’s new King Mohammed VI.

The report, which is the result of a year’s worth of interviews with Moroccan civil society activists, describes the activities of these organizations and segments them into four types: training, intellectual endeavors, advocacy and lobbying, and grassroots activism. The report conclude by suggesting ways that foreign NGOs can support these new Moroccan organizations and includes a glossary of the organizations interviewed.
