Les Hirak au Maroc : Faut-il un nouveau regard ?

Khalid Mouna | 14.09.2018

Morocco has known, since 2011, a social mobilization that has provoked a political change ; this mobilization continues today through the various forms of Hirak : Rif, Jrada, Boycott. These new mobilizations teach us about the changes produced within the Moroccan society, but they also push us to reflect on the way to think and practice social sciences in Morocco.
