Further Details
Abstract Most of the Moroccan migrants in France are politically voiceless, regarding their exclusion from the voting rights in both countries of settlement and of origin. As other transnational groups, these migrants have created many organizations in order to represent their interests and to express their sense of belonging. These organizations contribute to renew the French and Moroccan citizenship’s models, by developing transnational political practices and collective identities. Based on qualitative data and interviews with the militants of some of these organizations, this article explores this renewal by focusing on three dimensions of this Moroccan political transnationalism, which are its long and turbulent history, the particular places in which it occurs and the transformation of state policies it implies.
