The Development of the Associative Movement in Morocco: Challenges and Constraints

Mohamed Ait Oujaa


The present article has for aim to address the disequilibrium and fragmentation from which Moroccan associations suffer as well as to direct the attention towards the different challenges and constraints which the associative movement in Morocco has confronted and which have contributed in this latter’s evolvement regardless of the encountered difficulties. First and for most, this article will review the main historic periods tracing the existence of associative movements in Morocco while focusing on the significant challenges and constraints having been confronted by these latter. Second, while the main purpose of this articles is to analyze and explain these challenges and constraints and at the same time looking into the role which they have played in establishing the situation, this paper will also address the many interrelated factors which have led to this disequilibrium and the promotion of chaos in the network of associations most of which are considered related to human behavior, that is, the behavior of actors in the network of associations, while others are related to non-human actors. Finally, the article will conclude that the socio-economic and political evolution of the country agrees with adopting an associative approach even though it is a slow and laborious process.
