Tafra research center launches a new digital encyclopedia in the prospect of tracing the history of Morocco’s political parties

Tafra Association has recently launched a new partisan encyclopaedia to serve as a major database for all Moroccan parties.

This encyclopaedia took nearly one year of research in order to determine the background of all Moroccan parties since the protectorate, for all related information had been collected and categorized accordingly.

Tafra Research Center was established back in 2014, with the purpose of improving people’s understanding of Moroccan institutions, in the prospect of consolidating the rule of law throughout the nation. The association also believes that the 2021 constitution is key to achieving progress and prosperity.

This new partisan encyclopaedia aims at providing an introductory approach relating to Morocco’s political parties, as well as deepening people’s political knowledge in this regard.

The contents of this recently-launched encyclopaedia revolve around three main axes that mark Morocco’s political formations throughout its history:

The first axis covers the French protectorate (1912 – 1956), the era of King Mohammed V (1956 – 1961), the era of King Hassan II (1961 – 1999), and the era of King Mohammed VI (1999 to this day).

The second axis, on the other hand, tends to highlight all of Morocco’s political formations and alliances since the French protectorate, each of which includes a description, a technical card and an informative text, in addition to a list of references, documents and useful links.

Meanwhile, the third axis tends to classify political parties into categories: historical parties (Istiqlal party for example), ideological parties (the left-wing for instance), and functional parties (those represented within the parliament). This classification aims at helping people understand Morocco’s major political trends.

This encyclopaedia shall serve as an extensive database for the general public, Tafra revealed on its official platform, noting that the latter does not only tend to highlight Morocco’s 102 legal organizations, but also aims at deepening political knowledge and promoting participation in democratic life.
