Advancing stability and prosperity in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is critical to the achievement of the United States’ foreign policy. One part of this broader objective is reducing youth vulnerability to radicalization. There is a shared U.S. and Moroccan interest in Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) in Morocco and in the region.

The United States and Morocco have robust and long-standing Counter Terrorism (CT) cooperation and recognize combatting the threat of violent extremism as a top priority. This includes supporting Morocco’s comprehensive CVE strategy that, among other components, prioritizes countering radicalization and fostering economic and human development, particularly among youth who have not reaped the benefits of economic growth.
