This partnership aims to encourage and support the development of academic links in research, teaching and publishing between universities in the UK and universities in Morocco.
The programme is providing an interdisciplinary forum for research, scholarly partnerships and knowledge dissemination. It is focusing on history, culture, politics and society of the Maghreb area, its international relations and relevant transnational trends.
