Abstract:The purpose of the present article is to stress the nomothetic approach and to advocate a specific way of looking at the Maghreb, a way in which one can combine elements of political and development geography as they are being practised today in the Netherlands. In this approach, elements of theories on development are grafted on to the concept of the state, which forms the focal point for politico-geographical research. To illustrate the approach, the author confines himself to Morocco, and the formation and functioning of the Moroccan state. Sections: Introduction - The scope of political geography - Recent ideas in development geography - New approaches in research on Morocco - Suggested approaches to research on the Maghreb.
