Conclusion to the King’s European Morocco

  • Volkan IpekEmail author


The author makes his final remarks about the King’s European Morocco which covers Morocco’s membership application to the EEC in 1987. The author then refers to King Hassan II’s views on the compatibility of Islam with the West, which explains how respect for Islam during Lyautey’s period was the catalyst for the instrumentalization of hybridity between the French and locals that was used to create postcolonial Moroccan national identity. The author also states that Morocco’s application to European Union under the leadership of King Mohamed VI today could come to the agenda again amidst the disengagement process ignited by the Brexit process.
