Authors explore recent trends in Moroccan migration in edited collection Revisiting Moroccan Migrations
In Revisiting Moroccan Migrations, a new publication by Routledge, previously published as a special issue of The Journal of North African Studies, contributors draw on contemporary migration theories to explore current trends in Moroccan migration.
Over the 20th century, Morocco has become one of the world’s major emigration countries. But since 2000, growing immigration and settlement of migrants from sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, and Europe confronts Morocco with an entirely new set of social, cultural, political and legal issues. Revisiting Moroccan Migrations explores how continued emigration and increasing immigration is transforming contemporary Moroccan society, with a particular emphasis on the way the Moroccan state is dealing with shifting migratory realities.
Edited by IMI associate Mohamed Berriane, former IMI co-director Hein de Haas and former IMI research assistant Katharina Natter, the book contains a chapter from IMI research assistant Dominique Jolivet, who investigates 'Times of uncertainty in Europe: migration feedback loops in four Moroccan regions'.
