SIT Study Abroad Morocco: Migration and Transnational Identity

Using a multidisciplinary approach, enrich your understanding of migration through meetings with migrants, local NGOs, international institutions, and affected communities in Morocco and the Netherlands.

WHY STUDY MIGRATION IN MOROCCO?
Get an introduction to the history of migration in Morocco at the ancient Roman site, Volubilis, and the medieval cities of Fes and Meknès. In Rabat, discuss migration issues with prominent university professors and visit Moroccan and United Nations agencies and NGOs dealing with migration. In the northern cities of Tangier and Tétouan, you’ll visit African NGOs working with migrants and the border with Spain, where sustained undocumented migration takes place. On a seven-day stay in the Netherlands, you’ll discuss transnationalism, identity, and integration with Moroccan migrants, Dutch professors, and NGO workers. You will also spend a day with a Moroccan-Dutch community in Amsterdam. You will have the option of either interning with an organization focused on issues related to migration or carrying out an independent research project.
