Institutions, actors, and change in Morocco

Part of the Politik und Gesellschaft des Nahen Ostens book series (PGNO)


Which factor was responsible for institutional change in Morocco? This chapter illustrates institutions and actors within Morocco and their characteristics in regards to processes of institutional change as endogenous variables. The ACE meets an empirical environment, where a set of informal institutions often outweighs formal ones and where transparent and predictable mechanisms of institutional change are absent and political stability is favored by a small circle of influential and politically relevant actors over change. The goal of this chapter is to unravel the characteristics of institutions, actors and institutional change in Morocco. This characteristic interplay between actors and institutions is referred back to in the analysis of economic and environmental institutional change in Chapter 6.
