Morocco: Migration and Transnational Identity

Explore the effects of human mobility on local communities, global politics, and transnational economies; learn from discussions with asylum seekers, Syrian refugees, Moroccan immigrants in Europe, and the local communities impacted by migration.

This program examines the factors driving internal and international migration in Morocco and elsewhere in North and sub-Saharan Africa. You will consider how human mobility is shaped by religion, security, youth culture, desertification, poverty, and other pressing issues and how mobility engenders transnational art and multilayered identities. You will contextualize the social and psychological impact of migration through discussions with Moroccan residents in the Netherlands.

Major topics of study include:

  • The experiences of sub-Saharan African asylum seekers and Syrian refugees and related issues of human rights
  • The impact of remittances on rural communities in the High Atlas and Rif Mountains
  • NGOs’ roles in integrating Syrian refugees in Moroccan society
  • Moroccan immigrants in Europe
  • Gender and migration

The Migration and Transnational Identity program examines the multifaceted factors — including historical, economic, political, and cultural forces — spurring migration, with a particular focus on Morocco.

Learning in Rabat's Historic Medina


The program is located at the Center for Cross Cultural Learning, housed in a beautiful, nineteenth-century Moorish style riad in Rabat's centuries-old medina. Rabat's medina dates back to the sixteenth century when it was founded by Moorish refugees fleeing Spain after the fall of Granada. The Center is ideally situated near important cultural sites students often wish to explore, including the twelfth-century Kasbah Oudayas and the Ville Nouvelle, established by the French colonial administration at the beginning of the twentieth century.

From the program base in Rabat, you will begin thematic coursework, intensive language instruction in both Modern Standard Arabic and 15 hours of Moroccan dialect, and the Research Methods and Ethics course. Cultural immersion is greatly facilitated through an eight-week homestay with a working- or middle-class Moroccan family.

Meeting with first generation Moroccan female immigrants in the Netherlands


During the program’s excursion to the Netherlands, you will meet with Moroccan immigrants and learn firsthand about various patterns of integration and marginalization. The excursion features lectures by local academics, NGO activists, and second-generation Moroccan/Dutch elected officials.

The excursion is also an opportunity to revisit many of the conceptual topics and theoretical discussions explored in the classroom, including immigrants and Islam in Europe, the perception of Moroccan immigrants in the Netherlands, the role of NGOs in the promotion of human rights for immigrants, and immigrant youth and identity.

Exploring the Rif Region in Northeast Morocco

You will travel with the rest of your group across the north of Morocco to the cities of Al Hoceima and Berkane and the border town Nador. Shortly after flying to Amsterdam, you will see firsthand many of the conceptual topics and theoretical discussions explored in the classroom, including the cross-border labor force and Morocco-EU relations.

Since most Moroccan migrants in the Netherlands come from the northeast of Morocco, you will gain a better sense of the socioeconomic and cultural environment from which these migrants originally come. While learning about these migrants’ daily lives before crossing the Mediterranean, you can have a multi-site learning experience that includes the sending and the host migration countries.

Meeting at the Moroccan State Advisory Council on Immigration (CCME)

Visit to the Moroccan Advisory Council on migration

The program convenes regular discussion groups between SIT students and Moroccan university students at both Mohammed V University in Rabat and Iben Tofail University in Kenitra. Held both in and outside of the classroom, these discussions are an excellent opportunity to engage in cross-cultural dialogue with Moroccan youth.

Topics for discussion may include youth and migration, gender issues, religion, human rights, and the influence of Europe. You will have the opportunity to attend lectures at Mohammed V University with your Moroccan peers, while Moroccan students are invited to attend select lectures and field visits organized by SIT. 

Independent Study Project

You will work closely with your academic director and an advisor to design an Independent Study Project (ISP) on a topic that pertains to migration, mobility, or transnational identity. The ISP provides you with an opportunity to pursue original research on a specific aspect of migration that pertains to your academic interests or personal inclination. The ISP is conducted in Rabat or in another approved location in Morocco appropriate to the project.

Sample topic areas for the ISP include:

  • LGBT refugees in Morocco
  • Syrian refugees in Morocco
  • Transnational dimensions of Sufi Islam
  • Migrant images in Moroccan media
  • Youth and emigration
  • Causes and consequences of clandestine migration
  • Sub-Saharan immigrants and their integration in Moroccan society
  • European immigration laws and their impact on migration trends in Morocco
  • Migration and its impact on those who stay behind
  • Migrant remittances and local development
  • Life narratives of migrants
  • Migration and youth protest movements
  • Sub-Saharan migration and access to healthcare
  • Culture of migration in rural Morocco
  • European economic crisis and return migration
  • Moroccan diaspora in Europe and modernization policies in Morocco
  • Sub-Saharan migrants’ labor rights in Morocco
  • Female sub-Saharan activism in Rabat
  • Migrants and refugees from Africa south of the Sahara and Morocco’s new migration policy
  • Morocco and the transnational “War on Terror”
  • Moroccan integration policies for migrants from Africa south of the Sahara
  • Refugees and labor rights in Rabat and Casablanca
  • Masculinity and returning migrants from Italy


There are no prerequisites; however, students with a background in French will find ample opportunity for French language practice while also learning Arabic. Students with a background in Spanish will also have the opportunity to practice their Spanish language skills in northern Morocco.

The Migration and Transnational Identity course examines the historical, economic, political, and cultural underpinnings of migration. The approach is informed by the reality that migration is more dynamic than static push-pull models or simplified economic or demographic interpretations can reflect. Rather, the course challenges the student to approach migration from a multidisciplinary perspective in which migration is only one constituent part of more complex economic, development, demographic, and cultural processes. The Research Methods and Ethics course addresses culturally appropriate, ethical field methodology in the context of migration issues, in preparation for the Independent Study Project (ISP). Study of Arabic opens windows into the culture and the program’s theme.

Links to syllabi below are from current and forthcoming courses offered on this program. Because courses develop and change over time to take advantage of dynamic learning opportunities, actual course content will vary from term to term.

The syllabi can be useful for students, faculty, and study abroad offices in assessing credit transfer. Read more about credit transfer.

The course facilitates the student's development of critical perspectives capable of assimilating the reality of interconnectedness and transnationalization not only of problems, but more important, of viable alternatives. The course is divided into modules, which explore the following themes: culture and the Mediterranean space; sub-Saharan African immigrants in Morocco and trans-Saharan crossings and related issues of human rights and refugee status; Moroccan immigrants in Europe and development; gender and migration, and social movements and transnational identities. Throughout the course, readings and class discussions address issues of religion, race, gender, identity, undocumented and underage migrants, citizenship, and nationality.

Please note that in order to take advantage of dynamic learning opportunities, program excursions may occasionally vary.

Migration and Transnational Identities: Perspectives from the Netherlands and Morocco

The largest excursion on the program will allow you to trace the path of Moroccans emigrating from northeast Morocco to the Netherlands. In this cross-border excursion, you will be able to examine the complex impact of migration on both the sending and host countries.

The vast majority of Moroccan immigrants in the Netherlands (around 75%) are from the northeast of Morocco. Consequently, the program travels to Al Hoceima and Nador in Morocco’s northeast to enable you to situate migration in its cultural, historic, and economic contexts.

The City of Al Hoceima

MoroccoIn the city of Al Hoceima you will meet with civil society activists involved in issues of migration, gender, memory and history of the region, and local development. You will also learn about identity-based movements with political and cultural claims that distinguish this region from the rest of the country.

You will also learn about and visit nongovernmental organizations working in collaboration with Moroccan government and international aid agencies such as the Spanish organization MPDL (Movemiento por La Paz) on opening the Rif region and improving people’s conditions. These NGOs provide vocational skills trainings and experience to youth and returning migrants. The Moroccan National Initiative for Human Development (Initiative Nationale pour le Développement Humain — NDH) has a base in Al Hoceima and in the national park west of Al Hoceima.

Nador and Badis

In both the border town of Nador and the island of Badis, you will learn about Moroccan-Spanish border dynamics. Through site visits to Nador, you will observe and talk to human rights activists about immigrants’ attempts to challenge fortress Europe fences and militarized borders. In the island of Badis, you will observe the arbitrariness of borders where Spain and Morocco are separated by a Spanish outpost on Moroccan soil.

Other NGOs the program may visit include the following:

  • BADES (Association Bades d’Animation Sociale et Economique) provides counseling and coaching services for return migrants from the Netherlands and acts as a mediator between former migrants and Dutch state institutions and government administrations.
  • Dhakirat er-Rif (Rif Memory) works to reconstruct and rewrite the recent history of the Rif beyond ideological and political biases, believing that injustices and human rights abuses in the past should be recognized and apologized for by the Moroccan government and that Abdelkrim el-Khattabi (1883–1963) should be recognized as an important leader of the Rif.
  • Thaynith focuses on the preservation of the Amazigh culture and language by means of several projects, among them, courses in Tarift, the language of the Riffians.


Queens Day in AmsterdamDuring the program’s excursion to Amsterdam, you will consider the growing presence of Moroccans in Europe, particularly in the Netherlands. You will typically have the chance to do the following:

  • Have discussions with Moroccans living in the Netherlands.
  • Engage in a roundtable discussion with Dutch students at the University of Amsterdam.
  • Meet and attend a lecture by the Dutch-Moroccan novelist and 2013 Goncourt Prize winner Fouad Laroui.
  • Engage with Dutch politicians and learn about the rise of anti-immigration politics.
  • Examine Dutch patterns of integration and transnational activism between northern Morocco and the Netherlands.
  • Visit Dutch-Moroccan labor migration associations.
  • Learn about Dutch-Moroccan women’s activism in the Netherlands.
  • Hear lectures on the history of Moroccan migration to the Netherlands.
  • Learn about Dutch politics and migration policies, including the rise of right-wing politics and Islamophobia through a guided tour of Dutch Parliament.
  • Go on site visits to Moroccan immigrant neighborhoods in Amsterdam and the Hague.

You will also be immersed in many of the central debates surrounding the growing Muslim presence in Europe, including the varied reactions of Dutch politics and the rise of anti-immigrant/anti-Muslim parties, “success stories” of Muslim migrants and issues surrounding “integration,” and ideological constructions of Muslim identity.

The program may also spend some time in Leiden and The Hague. During the eight-day excursion, you will stay in guest houses and hotels.

Khouribga, Beni Mellal, and Rural Fqih Ben Saleh

The program’s third excursion is a three-day experience in Khouribga, Fqih Ben Saleh, and Beni Mellal, where you will explore the causes of migration while assessing migration’s impact on rural communities.

Fqih Ben Saleh is a small town in Beni Mellal in the Tadla Azilal plains, whose recent socioeconomic growth has been largely determined by remittances from Moroccan emigrants. You will meet with the staff and volunteers of local migrant associations and discuss the dynamic relationship between development and migration. You will also meet with local youth to compare perspectives on migration and youth disenfranchisement.

This excursion gives you the opportunity to gain firsthand experience of the impact migration has on a local rural economy and culture. You will have a chance to engage in a roundtable discussion with people from local communities on the issues of migration and development.
