The Open Government Review of Morocco is the first of its kind analysing a country’s open government policies and practices and their institutional and legal frameworks for implementation against OECD instruments. By bringing together a multitude of OECD instruments and expertise in different areas of public governance, the Review provides Moroccan policy makers, public sector officials and civil society activists with practical indications on how to improve and successfully implement their national open government agenda. In addition, the Review contains a list of recommendations on which to build Morocco’s Action Plan for the Open Government Partnership.

Civic engagement in Morocco

This chapter deals with the fundamental role played by citizen’s involvement in shaping government decision-making, which is a core component of Open Government. It presents the OECD approach to Open Government and analyses the evolution of citizen’s involvement in Morocco, looking into the two waves of reform that took place respectively before and after the Arab Spring. The assessment includes various aspects of citizen’s engagement such as access to information, civil society in Morocco, as well as the national dialogues, which were conducted to implement citizens’ participation. The opportunities of using ICTs to foster participation are equally outlined. The recommendations call for strengthened efforts to implement the principles of the new Constitution which define Morocco as a participatory democracy.
