Morocco’s Ahmed Charai has joined the International Crisis Group, a non-profit, non-governmental organization that carries out field research on violent conflict and advances policies to prevent, mitigate or resolve conflict.

This membership will allow Morocco to influence the editorial choices of the ICG, headed by American lawyer Robert Malley who served at the National Security Council under Barack Obama from February 2014 until January 2017.

As a member of the International Crisis Group, Charai will have to meet Algeria’s former Foreign Minister. The latter is close to ICG’s former president Jean-Marie Guéhenno.

Since Guéhenno left office, relations between Algiers and the organization deteriorated. This was confirmed by a report published in November by ICG, which slammed the political situation in Algeria.

For the record, Morocco is already a member of the Foreign Policy Research Institute in Philadelphia, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Atlantic Council, and the National Interest.
