Change of Course and Political Transition in Morocco and Tunisia

A comparative analysis of political transitions in Morocco and Tunisia reveals that even though the king remains the key player of the political system, change is nevertheless real in Morocco. Taking advantage of the new area of freedom granted by a period of openness – however strategic – and by the contagious effect of the upheavals in neighbouring countries, the new forms of protest and the expectations of Moroccans are radically different today.

In Tunisia, despite the revolution, the break with the past is far from being radical. The transition is conducted in reference to “the spirit and the values of the revolution”, while keeping many institutions and practices from the past. In spite of all this, the dynamics of a real and profound change is definitively underway.
