Emerging Trend or Chimera?
The aim of this contribution is to think about the modalities of change that have affected Islamism in Morocco over the last decades. Conceptualizing this change against the backdrop of larger academic debates on the relation between Islam and politics; I interrogate the notion of post-Islamism as a possible conceptual tool to broaden our understanding of political movements referring to Islam in the Moroccan context. Instead of positing any a priori assumption of what Islamist parties are or are not, what they can or cannot become, I focus on what these movements have done in the past and do today, i.e. how these movements evolved and changed over time. This chapter analyzes the ideological changes as well as the strategic options of the Islamist movements, the limits of mobilization and participation that the context is offering as well as the regional and global environment in which the movements operate.
