Sub-saharan Migration in Transit Countries: The Case of Morocco

Abstract

The object of this chapter is to analyse the characteristics and behaviour of the SSA migrant population in Morocco. We base this on data from a survey conducted between October 2015 and January 2016, with 877 male and female migrants: 1 (a) in Casablanca-Mohamédia, an urban area that is inherently attractive for the employment possibilities it offers (this characteristic has likewise held with regard to internal migration in Morocco since the 1920s; when it was decided to make Casablanca-Mohamédia the country’s largest port and economic capital), (b) in Rabat-Salé, which although to a lesser extent offers comparable opportunities; and c) in Tangiers, which is a transit city par excellence, lying only 15 kilometres from the European coast and thus attracts the most determined candidates.
