Morocco: Sovereignty, Legitimacy, Regime, System, and Ideology

Discuss the Sovereignty, legitimacy, regime, system, and ideology of Morocco.

  • Under Sovereignty, discuss internal Sovereignty (who has the right to rule, the parliament or the king?) and external sovereignty (is Morocco recognized by other states and a member of international organizations?)
  • Under legitimacy, introduce your measurement (World Bank Worldwide Governance Indicators). Say a few words about what it measures.
  • Under the regime, is Morocco considered free, partly free, or not free? Explain what this means.
  • Party system: discuss the major parties and who is in government.
  • Under ideology, use the Orvis and Drogus textbook to explain whether Morocco is considered a democracy or a modernizing authoritarian state.
