Country: Morocco, Rabat

rabat conference 2MDI Moroccan stakeholders, policy makers, media actors, media educators and civil society representatives gathered in Rabat to define the concept of diversity in the country’s current political, social and cultural context.

They have gathered at the conference “Media diversity: For professional journalistic practices that reflect the reality and the richness of the Moroccan Society”, organized jointly by the Media Diversity Institute (MDI) and its partner National Union of the Moroccan Press.

In 2009 when MDI started the work in Morocco, the only association with the word ‘diversity’ was ‘political pluralism’ and to the certain point, regionalization. Four years later and with more than 1200 Moroccans who have directly benefited from MDI Inclusive Journalism programmes, the country is at the crossroad.
