Morocco’s new constitution, adopted after the 2011 protests, introduced a more active role for civil society in local decision-making. From a gender perspective, however, women are still marginalised in regional institutions and governance. With EED’s contribution, al Mar’ah Association for Development and Solidarity is promoting gender parity and equality in the marginalised Hoceima region. They is conducting trainings for local authorities, as well as women’s rights awareness-raising campaigns.
