Publication: Gender-based violence in Morocco

The publication on “Gender-based violence in Morocco” was produced within the framework of the Culture for Sustainable and Inclusive Peace (CUSP) project. 

The study aims to provide an overview of gender-based violence in Morocco (GBV). It is structured around the following axes: a literature review that analyzes the different forms of GBV that exist in Morocco, the national and international legal framework that governs them, an illustration of emblematic examples of GBV produced in Morocco, the evolution of the feminist and LGBTQIA+ movement in Morocco.

The study also contains the results of individual interviews with women’s rights activists, representatives of national and international NGOs, researchers and sociologists. The interviews illustrate the inadequacies of the legal system that governs gender-based violence in Morocco, the difficulties they face as GBV interveners, as well as recommendations to fight GBV in Morocco once and for all.
