Members of the seminar group have to prepare an individual paper in which they can work about all aspects of 'the' Moroccan society in Morocco and abroad as well.
Doing so they learn to analyse as a sociologist, combining existing (Moroccan) sociological theoretical frameworks and relevant facts and figures of all kind.
Important is that their analyses take into account that Morocco is a very complex, mostly rural Maghreb country changing on many levels and in several ways. The impact of this transitional phase will become clearer situating 'the family' wthin the context of Morocco as 'composite society': in Morocco traversing, still quite intact structures and processes out of several historical phases (Ancien Regime, colonial regime, capitalist regime, migrating Morocco, ...) make the country a very complex society.
