The Role of Non -State Actors in Foreign Policy: Impact of Interest Group in Algeria on Morocco's Leaving OAU



The Western Sahara recognition by OAU has caused Morocco unprecedentedly withdrawal from its African organization. Thus this conflictual territory of Sahara has been an unchallengeable case file in the UN tasks of the dispute between several actors at different times since the Spanish granted the territory to Morocco in 1975. This paper illustrates how Algeria has utilized the non-state actor in Western Sahara to weaken Morocco's policy through its territory on the one hand and reshape Morocco's foreign policy decisions on the other. Yet, Algeria's involvement in the Western Sahara dispute has a long- term perspective especially in geopolitical and economic terms not only in North Africa but also in the entire continent.
