Tortura e violenze contro gli immigrati in Maroccolock_openopen access checkpeer reviewed
In the context of the European ‘governance’ of international migration, the so-called countries of transit end up being the first line of Europe’s borders, acting as laboratories for experimenting with the radical tightening of migration policies and as centers for the selection of immigrants who may reach the European continent. Morocco, that in recent years has also become a country of immigration and transit, is a symbol of this process, in which it plays the role of patroller of the European borders. This essay examines the phenomenon of torture and violence against sub-Saharan migrants in Morocco, focusing on the events of summer of 2018, without forgetting the historical roots of racism in the country and considering the role Morocco aims at playing in the region.
