Abstracts

This study is an attempt to understand the migratory streams between Morocco and France since the sixties. I’m particularly interested in a definite Moroccan region: Beni Ayatt in the Middle Atlas Mountains. The North African emigration towards Europe is a consequence from the colonial phenomenon, which has contributed to the domestic and foreign mobility of North African people. After the Second World War, all was done to create a migratory space for this population. This is the reason why, after the independency given to those countries, social and space transformation have increased the migration towards Europe. During the sixties, migratory networks were created thanks to family organisations and to an appeal to foreign labour by reception countries like France. That is how the migratory space Beni Ayatt/Angers was formed. This migratory network was essentially composed of men who had come to work regularly in France. Afterwards the family regrouping made possible for women and children to come, which gave them the opportunity to settle permanently.
