The World Upside Down: The Rise of Crisis-induced Spanish Migration to Morocco
MetadataShow full item record
This research studies the effects of the European crisis in terms of new trends in North-South migration: crisis-induced Spaniards migrating to Morocco. The main objective of this exploratory research is to contribute to a qualitative understanding of the causes, means and effects of Spanish labour migration into Morocco through portraying the migrants’ personal development in their transnational worlds. More specifically, this research aims to present the migration aspirations of the crisis-induced migrants, the economic, political, and socio-cultural practices in the migrants lifeworlds and the extent to which their practices and identifications are involved in transnational activism. Crisis-induced migrants in this perspective are considered to be Spaniards migrating to Morocco to escape the crisis in Spain and to enter the local labour market in Tangier.
