EU Democracy Promotion in Morocco Rule of Law Analysis

There has been undeniable progress in the areas of democratic reform and respect for human rights, in particular the adoption of the new family code, the law on political parties, the law outlawing torture, the strengthening of local democracy, the reform of the justice and prison systems, the new electoral code. In 2011, the new Constitution introduced a stronger separation of powers and somewhat reduces the political authority of the King.
