Amman, capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, is an ancient city facing distinct modern challenges. Built on seven hills, Amman has expanded in size and population from a quaint sleepy town at the close of World War II, to the bustling, multicultural metropolis it is today. Jordan is deeply enmeshed in the international relations of the region, sharing land borders with Iraq, Israel, Palestine and Saudi Arabia. Further, Jordan remains a key player in Arab-Israeli affairs. Over the past several decades it has absorbed refugees from Palestine, Kuwaitis who left Kuwait after the Iraqi invasion in 1990 and most recently, Iraqi refugees. These new inhabitants have transformed Amman and brought new life to its local culture.... [-]

Located on the Atlantic Coast, Rabat is one of Morocco’s imperial cities as well as its political capital. Rabat exemplifies Morocco’s unique cultural blend of Arab, the indigenous Amazigh (Berber), and European influences. While downtown Rabat is home to the austere Parliament building and the King’s Palace, just a few blocks away is the old medina; a fortressed city with labyrinth alleys, markets, shops, and restaurants. Further down the road is the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Kasbah of the Udayas and the Bou Regreg River, with some of the best views of Rabat and the neighboring city of Salé. Al-Maghrib is a language enthusiast's dream as Moroccans speak multiple languages-typically including Moroccan Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic, and French, as well as possibly an indigenous language (such as Tamazight, Tashleheit, or Tarifit), English, or Spanish. Famous for national dishes like couscous, tajine, and harira, Moroccan cuisine is nothing short of mouth-wateringly delicious. Despite the pervasiveness of Western influences, Amazigh and Arab identity continue to play a crucial role in Morocco’s traditional, yet, modern society. After achieving independence in 1956, Morocco became a constitutional monarchy and has been ruled by three successive Alaouite kings over the past 55+ years. Throughout his reign, the current king (Mohammed VI) has taken steps to reform the political, economic, and legal structures of Morocco. While the influence of the Arab Spring on this North African country is not as deep as elsewhere in the Arab world, Moroccans are increasingly engaged in the political arena... [-]
