Morocco

Morocco

by Linda Cassanos

Early Arab geographers referred to Morocco as Al-Maghreb al-Aqsa-- "the farthest land of the setting sun." Today this country in the northwest corner of Africa--long a crossroads for trade from Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, and the East--retains a distinctly exotic feel, with its colorful mix of Middle Eastern, African, and Western cultures.But Morocco is also a nation struggling to emerge from a difficult colonial past and a recent history of human-rights violations. If the country succeeds in its quest to develop stable and democratic political institutions as well as a vibrant economy--and to accomplish these goals without violence?Morocco may serve as a powerful example to the Arab world.
