Professor Mohamed Berriane, Université Mohammed V - Agdal Rabat, Morocco

With over 3 million migrants living abroad, Morocco is commonly known as an emigration country. However, Moroccan migration has undergone fundamental transformations, and is now characterised by a simultaneous existence of emigration as well as immigration from the South (sub-Saharan Africa) and the North (Europe).

Based on recent empirical research, Professor Berriane will give an overview of these new migratory trends to and from Morocco, their functional relations and their implications for research and policy.
