Morocco – A Shining Star

Council of Foreign Relations fellow Joel Hirst calls Morroco a “shining star of the Arab Spring” in the Huffington Post. He points out that while critics do make fair points,  “the Moroccan constitutional reforms appear to be genuine. Morocco seems to be traveling down the path embraced by Spain, France, England, and even Thailand as they relegated their kings to an increasing ceremonial status as heads of state — not government. This was a slow process for those countries, and for Morocco will be no different. For this reason the Moroccan example should be embraced — and applauded.”
