Despite the huge output of research on Moroccan migration, particularly on the links between migration and development, comparative research between Morocco and other significant countries of emigration has been comparatively limited. We suggest two main reasons for this. First, a substantial quantity of this research is published in Morocco and receives very limited distribution elsewhere. Second, the barrier that is still posed by the French-English linguistic divide is more frequently crossed by Dutch scholars than by native French or English speakers, limiting knowledge of work that falls significantly to one side or other of this linguistic divide. Despite significant literatures in Spanish or Dutch, the bulk of work on Morocco's experience of migration and development appears in French and remains largely unknown in Anglophone circles. We hope that this special issue will contribute to overcoming both of these issues. This introduction reviews the literature on Moroccan migration and development and introduces the key themes of the special issue.
