Rural Women and Socioeconomic Changes in Morocco. Gender Implications of the Arrival of Tourism in a Berber Community

22.06.2018 / Created by IEMed

This article examines the process of change currently experienced by the Berber ethnic group of the Ait Haddidou, who live in the most eastern part of the High Atlas Mountains (Morocco), specifically in the Assif Melloul Valley. This analysis focuses on how this process is influencing Haddidou women, who are the most vulnerable and poverty-stricken.

The article is part of Quaderns de la Mediterrània (Notebooks of the Mediterranean) which is one of the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed)’s projects that contribute to intercultural dialogue in the Mediterranean.
