Morocco’s role in shaping Islam in Africa

22 February 2014


Senior Fellow Bakary Sambe commented on Morocco's recent activities to become a leading religious influence in Africa. The Kingdom has just signed an agreement to train 500 imams in Mali, and King Mohamed VI's upcoming official visit to Equatorial Guinee is likely to result in a similar arrangement.

Bakary's recent monograph, 'Islam and Diplomacy. Morocco's Foreign Policy in Africa," examines these issues in more depth.
