The Spanish Protectorate in Morocco: the transcended history

Key to understanding the relationship between both countries and the ties that unite us.

The work The Spanish Protectorate in Morocco: the transcended history, sponsored by Iberdrola to mark the centenary of the establishment of the Spanish Protectorate in Morocco, sets out to analyse and explain this important period between 1912 and 1956. Its 1,500 pages explore the period from a political, military, legal, social and cultural perspective.

This reference work was presented in the Casa Árabe centre by the chairman of Iberdrola, Ignacio Galán, and serves as a key to understanding the relationship between both countries and the links and common interests that bind them together. The project was headed by Manuel Aragón Reyes, Professor of Constitutional Law at the Autónoma University in Madrid, and has tapped the experience, erudition and efforts of 60 renowned authors including Eduardo Torres-Dulce (Director of Public Prosecutions), José Manuel García-Margallo, and Saad Dine El Otmani (Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Spain and Morocco, respectively).

With this publication, Iberdrola further reinforces its commitment to education, by offering an informative work that explores in a detailed and yet readable way the influence each country had on the other.
