Morocco under Mohamed VI one demo-despotism

Under the reign of Mohammed VI, Morocco has experienced definite breakthroughs in the fields of civil liberties and investments. The transition’s style was closer to Hassan’s than to a democracy : the new king has successfully, and peacefully, led hostile or rival forces to submit and to join – all, except a few Islamic movements. His regime is both a hybrid and an oxymoron. It is a kind of demo-despotism containing enlightened despotism and fragile democratic landmarks. To analyze it, one needs to refer to anthropology, to a realistic transitology, to the history of European absolute monarchies and to the political Islam of the Classic Era.
