A new article by Katharina Natter examines why and how irregular migration became set on Morocco's political agenda, transformed into a new area of public intervention and progressively framed as a national public problem

The article 'The Formation of Morocco's Policy Towards Irregular Migration (2000–2007): Political Rationale and Policy Processes' is published in the International Migration Journal.

Katharina Natter, IMI Research Assistant, argues that the factors that influence the formation of transit states' policies towards irregular migration have been insufficiently analysed. Natter therefore presents Morocco as a case study to investigate why and how Morocco, at the interface of Euro-African migration flows, created a policy towards irregular migration at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
