The programme's main objectives in Morocco are to:

  1. Morocco - University: Provide support to students and political actors with different inspirations and references, including Islamist and leftist student unions, to establish collaborative ways of reducing violence on university campuses.
  2. Morocco – Islamist-secular rapprochement for an inclusive society: Strengthen the establishment of a coalition of secular and Islamist figures engaged for an inclusive society to jointly undertake sensitization activities related to promoting an inclusive and participative society by accompanying the leading committee in its progress and facilitating the coalition’s meeting.

Projet Maroc 2015-2017The project was carried out jointly between the Cordoba Foundation of Geneva (CFG) and the Swiss Federal Department for Foreign Affairs (FDFA).

The CFG works in the arena of conflict transformation, peace promotion and violence prevention. From 2011, following the wave of popular uprisings across North Africa and the Middle East, the CFG concentrated on accompanying those countries facing profound political and social changes.

The engagement of the Swiss FDFA in the field of peace and security promotion is among the four strategic priorities of the Swiss Foreign Policy Strategy 2016-2019. One of its specific areas of engagement is the transformation of violent conflicts with a religious dimension.
