Country Risk Ratings

  • Overall
  • Political
  • Security
  • Operational

Morocco continues to enjoy relative political stability. Anti-government protests gained momentum during the 2011 Arab uprisings but were largely quelled by a series of constitutional reforms. King Mohammed VI continues to enjoy public support and is viewed as a stabilizing force in the country. After the reforms of 2011, responsibility for addressing socio-economic grievances was transferred to the government.

Security risks do not generally impact business and operations. Protests are frequent but rarely turn violent and are generally localized. The crime threat is moderate and limited to petty crime. On the terrorism front, the last major attack was in 2011. However, the number of thwarted militant plots reflects the pressure that events across the region are placing on the Kingdom’s security environment. The terrorism threat in Morocco consists of small homegrown and low-capability cells with few members, and sometimes led by returning fighters from Iraq and Syria. The Islamic State (IS) does not maintain any significant organizational structure in Morocco. Security forces have proven capable of disrupting cells in the early stages of attacks.
