2016 Trip to Morocco

Date: July 9-27, 2016

Modern Morocco with all its richness and complexities, as well Morocco’s centuries old history and cultural traditions are often unknown to Americans. To address this gap, the World Affairs Council and the American Moroccan Alliance have developed a three-part program on Morocco, with a special emphasis on Moroccan culture, to bring some much-needed context to the American public and, particularly, to American students and teachers.
