Morocco: Migration and Transnational Identity

Morocco: Migration and Transnational Identity

Explore the effects of human mobility on local communities, global politics, and transnational economies.

This program examines the factors driving internal and international migration in Morocco and elsewhere in North and sub-Saharan Africa. Students 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. Students 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
  • Culture and the Mediterranean space
  • 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

RabatThe 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, students 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 a seven-week homestay with a working- or middle-class Moroccan family.

Meeting with Moroccan Immigrants in the Netherlands

NetherlandsDuring the program’s excursion to the Netherlands, students 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

Students travel as a group across the north of Morocco to the cities of Al Hoceima and Berkane, and the border town Nador. Shortly after flying to Amsterdam, students 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, students gain a better sense of the socioeconomic and cultural environment these migrants originally come from. While learning about these migrants’ daily lives before crossing the Mediterranean, students can have a multi-sited learning experience that includes the sending and the host migration countries.

Discussions with Moroccan University Students

Visit to the Moroccan Advisory Council on migrationThe 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. SIT students have the opportunity to attend lectures at Mohammed V University with their Moroccan peers, while Moroccan students are invited to attend select lectures and field visits organized by SIT. 

Independent Study Project

Students work closely with their 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 each student with an opportunity to pursue original research on a specific aspect of migration that pertains to the student’s 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:

  • 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 the Moroccan 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

Prerequisites:

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.

Access Virtual Library Guide

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.

Migration and Transnational Identity – syllabus
(AFRS 3000 / 3 credits / 45 class hours)
This course provides the main context for students to engage academically, epistemologically, and intellectually with the theme of migration and mobility. Students utilize a multi-level and multi-disciplinary approach that considers core issues of local and global cultural politics, development policies and their implications on national economies, local communities, and human rights, all in the context of transnational mobility. 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.

Intensive Language Study: Arabic – syllabus

The course is designed to equip students with a proficiency level in spoken Modern Standard Arabic in order to engage in everyday communication. The course integrates the skills of reading, writing, listening, grammar, vocabulary, and conversation. Students with prior study in Arabic will find reinforcement of Modern Standard Arabic through the media. Homestays, field excursions, and everyday interactions assist in language acquisition.

Research Methods and Ethics – syllabus
(ANTH 3500 / 3 credits / 45 class hours)
This course is designed to provide firsthand and experiential knowledge about the richness and challenges of conducting field study in Morocco. It provides the necessary conceptual and methodological thread that enables the student to learn from experience, to apply the knowledge and skills gained in language study and the thematic course, and to prepare to undertake field study in Morocco in strict observance of research procedure involving human subjects and the regulatory ethical norms defined by the Institutional Review Board. At the end of the course, the student should have the cultural understanding and the methodological tools to successfully complete an Independent Study Project. The course is also designed to answer specific concerns that research on migration generally raises. Migration involves minors, undocumented migrants in transit, friends and families of victims of clandestine migrants, policy makers, and international organizations. The lectures address issues that pertain to research methods, confidentiality and anonymity of informants, data gathering and interviewing, and safety and migrant psychology. Individual meetings are scheduled throughout the course to address research objectives and expectations of each student.

Independent Study Project – syllabus
(ISPR 3000 / 4 credits / 120 class hours)
Students work closely with their academic director and a local advisor to design and build  their Independent Study Project (ISP). Sample topic areas: creating a common culture among Moroccans and sub-Saharan Africans through Gnawa music; the relationship between the Kingdom of Morocco and its residents abroad; the incorporation of migration into death experiences within and beyond Morocco; the consequences of irregular migration on racial perceptions; the spiritual, geographical, and musical origins of flamenco in the Maghreb; and unpacking the social, cultural, and historical aspects of Moroccan migration.

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 allows students to trace the path of Moroccans emigrating from northeast Morocco to the Netherlands. In this across-borders excursion, students are 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, Nador, and Berkane in Morocco’s northeast to enable students to situate migration in its cultural, historic, and economic contexts.

The City of Berkane

In Berkane, students learn about return migrants and their family stories from the Netherlands. Through the program’s partner, the Dutch-Moroccan foundation for return migrants, students learn about forced female return migration from the Netherlands, families left behind, and stories of transnational families in Morocco and northern Europe.

The City of Al Hoceima

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

Students 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 are providing vocational skills trainings and experience. The Moroccan National Initiative for Human Development (Initiative National 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, students learn about Moroccan-Spanish border dynamics. Through site visits to Nador, students observe and talk to human rights activists about immigrants’ attempts to challenge fortress Europe fences and militarized borders. In the island of Badis, students 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:

  • RODPAL is a network consisting of around 15 associations focused on the development of the national park of Al Hoceima, particularly in the areas of artisanal fishery, environmental education, rural tourism, and gender.
  • 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 governmental administration.
  • 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, amongst them courses in Tarift, the language of the Riffians.

Amsterdam

Queens Day

During the program’s excursion to Amsterdam, students consider the growing presence of Moroccans in Europe, particularly in the Netherlands. Students typically have the chance to do the following:

  • Have discussions with Moroccans living in the Netherlands
  • 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 Islamaphobia through a guided tour of Dutch Parliament
  • Go on site visits to a Moroccan immigrant neighborhood in Amsterdam and the Hague

Students are also 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, students stay in guest houses and hotels.

Village Stay in Fqih Ben Saleh

The program’s third excursion is a village stay in Fqih Ben Saleh, where students explore the many different causes of migration while considering its impact on the cultures and societies of several rural areas within Morocco.

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

This village stay gives students the opportunity to gain firsthand experience of the impact migration has had on a local economy and culture. They also have a chance to engage in a roundtable discussion with people from local communities on the issues of migration and development.

During the four- to five-day excursion, students live in Fqih Ben Saleh in the homes of local families. Most of the families have relatives living abroad, which allows students to experience the dynamics of migration from the perspectives of families who have remained in Morocco.

Living with a host family is an integral component of the Morocco: Migration and Transnational Identity program. Homestays provide students with a unique window into the daily life, values, and perspectives of Moroccan families as well as an opportunity to practice language skills, particularly darija (Moroccan Arabic), and in some cases also French. The program contains two homestay experiences in very different environments, illustrating to students the enormous differences between life in urban and rural Moroccan communities. 

Rabat

homestayStudents live with middle- and working-class families in Rabat for seven weeks. Homestay families are located in the city's seventeenth-century medina, a captivating and historic area of Rabat with an original and independent architectural style.

With their host families, students experience Moroccan daily life, accompanying family members on regular activities such as shopping in the souk, going on café outings, and taking bread to the neighborhood faran (local bakery). They also have the opportunity to visit the hammam (Moroccan public bath). Homestays provide an opportunity to participate in family cultural events, which could include family weddings or newborn naming ceremonies. Students also may be invited by their host brother or sister to the weekly soccer match.

The homestay in Rabat is coordinated by the program's host institution, the Center for Cross Cultural Learning (CCCL), which has been collaborating with homestay families for more than a decade.

Fqih Ben Saleh

The rural village stay in Fqih Ben Saleh offers students a different perspective on the host culture in contrast to the homestay in urban Rabat. Many customs and features of Moroccan culture derive from rural or agrarian traditions; the experience of living in rural homes sheds new light on Morocco’s cultural norms.

The village stay is also an opportunity for students to learn about the realities of Moroccan ethnic groups and marginal rural communities distinct from the mainstream urban culture. This offers important insights on the historical formation of national identity and ways in which local ethnic or political power is maintained.

Other accommodations during the program include hostels or small hotels.
