The main topic of my communication is the recent progress of the linguistic and cultural revitalization of the Amazigh, i.e. Berber language and identity in Morocco. The reality I'm dealing with is just a fragment of a larger question, concerning cultural and political status of Berber tribes in different countries of the Northern Africa, including both the Maghreb and the regions further to the south, including Mali. This question is by no means a pacific one; it's connected to many political problems and seen as a source of instability in Africa. Morocco is just a relatively stable country of the region that over the last decade have managed to find relatively satisfactory solutions to this question.
