Bridging social divides: leadership and the making of an alliance for women’s land-use rights in Morocco


Berriane, Yasmine (2016). Bridging social divides: leadership and the making of an alliance for women’s land-use rights in Morocco. Review of African Political Economy, 43(149):350-364.

Abstract

This article analyses a women’s movement that emerged in the context of increased land commodification in Morocco. It focuses on the dynamics that characterised the making of this coalition of actors across the social divide. It mainly analyses the division of tasks among the different partners, highlighting the role played by intermediate organisations and actors in connecting and merging together local, national and international norms, practices and actors. The empowerment of this intermediate layer of leaders indicates a gradual inversion of the power hierarchy and illustrates the fluidity of domination relationships within social movements.
