Abstract

Based on a sample of around one thousand interviews with returnees in Morocco Algeria and Tunisia, the report sets out to determine the manifold factors shaping return migrants’ patterns of reintegration. Its novelty lies, among others, in making a distinction between migrants who decided to return and those who were compelled to do so. Actually, as the collected data were gradually processed and analysed, it turned out that this distinction was key to understanding migrants’ patterns of social and professional reintegration.

Keywords: Return migration, field survey, Maghreb, North African, Patterns of Reintegration
