The Casablanca Group was an organization of African "progressive states"[who?] (Algeria, Egypt, Ghana, Guinea, Libya, Mali, and Morocco) [1] founded in 1961. It promoted Pan-Africanism and gathered Gamal Abdel-Nasser's Egypt, Ghana (led by Kwame Nkrumah), Sékou Touré's Guinea, Mali, Libya or Morocco for a short period — left-wing Moroccan prime minister Abdallah Ibrahim had just been dismissed.

The Casablanca Group merged as a compromise with the Monrovia Group, which promoted nationalism, into the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) created in 1963.
