Résumé
This dissertation presents doctoral research on the protection of forced migrants in Morocco. It compiles three papers, an introduction, conclusions and policy recommendations. To avoid hegemonic and Eurocentric thinking, different disciplinary approaches are taken : a doctrinal analysis of international law, a socio-legal study based on fieldwork with Congolese migrants in Rabat, and an international relations assessment of Morocco’s African migration policy. The results show the a dynamic agency in the Global South, especially among the Congolese migrants, but also the Moroccan state, within a structuring global power imbalance dominated by the North. A new concept of ‘protection consciousness’ is proposed to give expression to migrants understanding of protection. Policy recommendations are also put forth, including the further development of a binding mechanism to allocate the shared responsibility for the protection of forced migrants in proportion to the respective capacity of each state.
