Changes in the methods and tactics of terrorist groups have triggered continuous and permanent legislative change nationally and internationally. Legislative bodies have become hyper-responsive to these events, beginning the creation of the terrorist act, and including the broadening of international treaties, as well as efforts to dry up sources of terror financing, and total overhauls of existing protocols. This paper outlines the measures Morocco has taken to deal with terrorism, examining both the domestic and regional factors that are influencing decisions. The paper claims that understanding the determinants of Moroccan legislative policy cannot be done without first looking into the general frame of reference and the societal projects within which these policies are set. The paper reveals the presence of intersecting strategies in the Moroccan context.
