In 2011, Morocco adopted a new constitution enshrining the national commitment in favour of the rule of law and human rights. The constitution proposes a model of governance grounded on independent oversight institutions promoting human rights, democracy and accountability.

Since 2006 we have supported the Moroccan government, independent institutions and civil society organisations working on security and justice sector reforms. DCAF's Morocco programme is funded by the Trust Fund for North Africa (TFNA), created in 2012 with the aim of responding quickly and flexibly to requests for assistance from North African governments.

At the request of its national partners, the Morocco programme operates in the following areas:

  • Support for strengthening parliamentary and independent oversight;

  • Support for transparency, communication and information sharing;

  • Legal assistance;

  • Inclusive dialogue on security needs and policies;

  • Managing change in the security and justice sectors.
