Despite the significance of the reforms Mohammed VI promoted in all aspects of Moroccan social, political and economic life, public opinion surveys show that Moroccans are profoundly dissatisfied. There is profound dissatisfaction about the state of the economy, the performance of government and corruption. Employing survey data from the Arab Transformations project the paper explains how the socio-economic reforms undertaken during Mohammed VI's reign did transform the Kingdom, but also left intact many o the problems affecting country.
