It is never a straightforward undertaking to build shared experiences with people from different backgrounds. The language and the points of reference change from one person to another, from one country to another, from one profession to another. And yet this is what the participants in the meeting organised by the CIDOB and the United Nations University attempted to do for two days in Rabat, as spring turned to summer in 2012.

Many and varied views were exchanged during these two days, professional divides were added to cultural divides and, bit by bit, word by word, they helped to build an immensely coherent story exploring the ties, the differences, the wariness and the complicity between the judicial system, the press, freedom and democracy in the countries on both shores of the Mediterranean.
