    Chapter 5: Jihadism in North Africa: A House of Many Mansions

    17 November 2015.

    17 November 2015. 

    Although Mohammed VI’s response to popular uprisings in 2011 has mostly succeeded, it has revived a persistent question of whether gradual, palace-driven reforms from above can produce tangible institutional change in how power is shared and exercised.
