Participation is widely applied in rural development project, recently in Southern Morocco several program have been launched, most of them are based on rural community participation. The ambiguous socio-political conditions in which donor-funded aid program are set permits the birth of hybrid form of dominance that undermine the achievement of the participatory goals of the projects. Using Tighdouine Municipality as a case study, the aim of this work is to study the unintended outcomes that are the effect of the clash between technocratic model used by the aid-agency and the traditional forms of deliberation held by local power structures.
