Abstract:

Going on for thousands of years, the mobility of people has always been a controversial issue with attitudes ranging from openness and tolerance in good economic times, to resentment and even xenophobia, particularly during times of economic crises or slowdowns. Today, the geographic landscape of origin and destination countries for international migrants has changed fundamentally. Countries such as the North African and Muslim State of Morocco have turned from being, historically, net emigration countries to net recipient nations and thus started facing the same challenges and criticism that for long motivated their political rhetoric with regards to the West in general and the European Community in particular. Legitimate concerns stem from the inextricable link between migration, exclusion, identity crises and most importantly security challenges, especially with the current rising threat of extremism around the world.
