De la friture sur la ligne des réformes : La libéralisation des télécommunications au Maroc

Abstract : [Crackling on the lines of reform. The liberalization of telecommunications in Morocco] The liberalization of telecommunications in Morocco is closely linked to the royal succession, partly for chronological reasons, and partly because it reveals the workings of a political transition that was desired at the top and received a large consensus. The triumph of "transparency" evident in the relative success of the process and the consistency of the accompanying legislation with international norms cannot, however, conceal the persistence of ways of working inherited from the previous era, with the overwhelming predominance of royal power, the partly deliberate creation of legal and administrative loopholes making way for arbitrary intervention, the continuation of secrecy and informal relations that are at the very heart of the Makhzen. The result is a sometimes paradoxical interplay of tensions in which actors end up in spite of themselves playing the opposite role from what could have reasonably been expected.
