The Struggle for Energy Democracy in the Maghreb

November 02, 2016

The European Union and its member states claim that its international relations are guided by values and principles based on democracy and human rights. Countless projects are financed and implemented in this regard. Europe’s hunger for energy is no exception in this context, and this brochure, authored by Hamza Hamouchene, serves as an introduction to this topic. Hamouchene’s text outlines the blatant disregard for the will of the people in areas of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia that are subject to the production of energy for Europe. The brochure also serves as an introduction for climate activists to these North African countries, providing an overview of the region’s popular struggles for climate justice.
