The Sahrawi Hassanicultural heritage, Moroccan identity and regional development through the Moroccan Autonomy Project

Throughout its history,Morocco has always hosted and defended a cultural diversity which gave him strength and singularity. It presents significant regional cultural, ethnic and linguistic specificities without contradicting itself with the national unity of Morocco. In fact, the question of cultural diversity has never arisen in Morocco as a counterweight to the power of the State to recognize regional specificities, On the contrary, the central power in its function of arbiter,did not seek to make one culture dominate over another. He clearly displayed his desire to make the region a space where social relations could be expressed in all their dimensions.
