- Agadir Charter
- This text is concerned with Berber cultural and linguistic rights and identity claims in Morocco, and it was signed on 5 August 1991 by a collective of Amazigh cultural associations in Agadir. This collective consisted of the Rabat Moroccan Research and Cultural Exchange Association, the Agadir Summer University Association, the Goulmima Ghris Cultural Association, the Rabat New Association for Cultural and Popular Arts, the Nador Ilmas Cultural Association, and the Casablanca Soussi Cultural Association.The Agadir Charter outlined Berber demands and the establishment of the Institute of Tamazight Studies and Research. The goals of this institute include the promotion of Berber language and history, elaboration of a unified writing system of Tamazight, insertion of Tamazight in the educational system, and establishment of a department of Tamazight language and culture in every Moroccan university.The text also called for a revisionist reading and analysis of Moroccan history. Consequently, the charter led to the spread of Berber cultural associations throughout Morocco. See also SOUS.
