The project Tanwir seeks to raise public awareness of political issues in Morocco, and to build a network of researchers who work on issues as democracy and political reform. This initiative aims to train young activists and create a website that provides analyses on democracy in Morocco.
The project encouraged publishing material on MIPA’s platform, and the production of analytical materials (articles, analyses, studies…). Moreover, Tanwir has organized workshops to train 40 young researchers and activists from various Moroccan universities, providing them with the skills necessary to conduct deep and effective analyses on policy issues.
This training consists of two stages, the first is theoretical, where participants are introduced to the basics of writing papers and articles on public policies, as well as the writing style etc…The second stage brings together the same participants to work on developing their drafts. In addition, the project organized the annual seminar “Rabat Policy Forum” that includes senior researchers from inside and outside Morocco, in order to discuss a range of issues related to democracy in Morocco.
