AUTHOR : Hind Arroub
PUBLISHED BY : Wijhat Nadar, 2004
Through an approach rooted in political culture, this book analyzes the ‘makhzan’, the old executive apparatus in the Moroccan political system. Different aspects of the ‘makhzan’ are analyzed: its definition, origin, mechanisms of operation, and its survival as both a traditional administrative structure and a governance system. The book examines the continuity and omnipresence of the ‘makhzan’ in Moroccan political culture and deconstructs it through a study of its past, structures, figures, doctrines, and adaptive capacity as well its relationship with political actors like the monarchy, the army, political parties, ulemas and elites.
