Transnational practices of the Moroccan community in Rome
Anno: 2006 – 2008
Responsabile: Mattia Vitiello
The recognition of transnational practices of Moroccan immigrants shows that among the Moroccan community present in Rome such practices are quite widespread. We have pointed out that there is a continuous exchange between the latter and the home community. This exchange takes the form of economic exchange in the majority of cases. A more collective-oriented dimension is noticeable among the women interviewed that are interested in cultural and political aspects of trans national practices. They prefer to approach trans national practices with more institutional tools and they also tend to build up institutional networks. So the political objective of trans national practices expands the scope of the latter that surpasses the limits of family networks.
