Truth and Reconciliation in Morocco

Download document

As the first truth commission in the region, Morocco’s Equity and Reconciliation Commission sought to address the legacy of more than 40 years of repression and human rights violations known as the “Years of Lead.” The commission was part of a gradual process of dealing with the past, an opening that began in the early 1990s. Since completion of the commission’s final report in 2005, Moroccans have taken further steps toward reckoning with the past.
