Casa Árabe presents this afternoon at 6 pm on its Youtube and Facebook Live channels the book Morocco, the strange neighbour, by journalist Javier Otazu, published by Los Libros de la Catarata. In Spanish. The event will be attended by the author and Ángeles Ramírez, prologue of the book and professor at the Department of Social Anthropology of the Autonomous University of Madrid.
It has been repeated ad nauseam that Morocco debates between modernity and tradition, but the topic, despite what may be true, is not enough to explain all its paradoxes. For its people, Morocco is a nation that has chosen its own path, that does not bow down before Europe’s impositions, but neither does it align itself with an Arab world that is gangrenous due to religious and identity conflicts. But for the Arabs of the East, it is a country on the periphery, Berber and mixed race, corrupted by French colonisation; for the sub-Saharans, a country that looks down on them; for the Europeans, the neighbour that constantly knocks on the door, one of the toughest negotiators they have to deal with.
